Learning Environments and JISC CETIS

Key developments around Learning Environments in the UK and the role that JISC CETIS has played.

One of the advantages of having being involved with JISC for a number of years (as a project and a service) is the opportunity to reflect on some activities that we've been involved in for some time. We thought it would be interesting to take the long view of some of our involvement with learning environments and reflect on what has worked and why, and where we think these activities are going next.
