The IWMW Blog
The IWMW blog has been set up to support providers of institutional web and other digital services across the UK’s higher and further education sectors. The initial focus of the blog is the history of the IWMW event.
The blog was established for IWMW 2016, the 20th anniversary event to provide a record of memories of the event and the development and growth of the UK Web management / digital community. The blog continues to fulfil that purpose, with posts tending to be published around the time of the annual IWMW event.
IWMW 2019, the 23rd annual Institutional Web Management Workshop, will take place at the University of Greenwich on 25-27 June 2019.
The HE Digital Slack Community
The HE Digital Slack group was set up by members of the IWMW Advisory Group to provide a forum for sharing and discussions of topics relevant to those working in institutional web and digital teams in the UK higher education community.
A post on the IWMW blog provides further information.
