While at IWMW2009 try to make time to check out the iLab(Innovation lab) on the Colchester Campus.

This is:

an inspirational facility designed for group work, which transports users from their everyday environment into an extraordinary space encouraging creative thinking and problem solving.


Some of the resources include:

  • Tutor’s computer with Microsoft Office (PowerPoint, Excel, Word etc) & internet connection
  • Data projection of Tutor’s computer/ video on to drop down screen, overhead projector
  • Comfy chairs!
  • Childrens games, lego, play doh, art materials
  • CD player, DVD player
  • Whiteboards – Floor to ceiling whiteboards throughout
  • Digital camera, satellite TV/ radio, plasma screen displays
  • Visualiser projector
  • Slide projector / Flipchart

Three of the parallel sessions will run in the iLab:

So if you are booked on any of these you’ll get a chance to check the ILab out. If you aren’t attending any of these sessions contact the organising committee or the local organisers and they may be able to organise a tour for you.
