Master Classes

IWMW 2017, the annual Institutional Web Management Workshop, took place at the University of Kent on 11-13 July. The theme of the year’s event, the 21st in the series was “It’s The End Of The Institution As We Know It (And We Feel Fine)“. Details of the master class sessions for the IWMW 2017 event are given below.

The master classes were introduced at IWMW 2015 and, due to popular demand, were repeated at IWMW 2016. The master classes provide additional time to address a subject area of relevance to those with responsibilities for managing institutional web services and other digital channels.

Details of the parallel master class sessions at IWMW 2017 are given below. These sessions will take place from 14.50-17.30 on Wednesday 12 July 2017. Participants can choose to attend one of the master class sessions.

Note you must make a note of the session code when you wish to book a place at the event (the online booking form is held on a separate web site).
