There are 9 special interest groups and the University of Edinburgh is represented on three of those, with Mark Ritchie and Stefan Kaempf of Applications Directorate on the Project and Change Management group, and the Corporate Information Systems group respectively, and myself on the Support Services Group.

Our involvement in these groups ranges from hosting community days, through contributing to best practice toolkits and even helping to organise and deliver full user group conferences. We wanted to focus on what students want from IT in the ever changing, fast paced technological world. Choosing a conference topic is never easy, but this particular theme gave us the chance to hear from speakers on a huge variety of topics and the sessions have sparked lively debate and given people lots of ideas about their own service areas.

Hector is the Accessibility Evangelist at Microsoft and I think we all came away with some great hints to help make our support tools and pages accessible to all. Nope, me neither! You can read more about these and other great, innovative features at aka.

There was a really popular session on Mental Health First aid and a presentation from Happy Signals who are vendors for a Customer experience tool. I found many of the talks very useful and have taken a lot of ideas away and plan to implement some changes in my team as a result. Thank you to everyone at ucisa for organising such a fantastic conference! All the topics were truly thought provoking and left me thinking how we could improve customer experience within the school and beyond.

It was a great platform to meet and network with people from different universities. SSG19 has been a super ucisa conference — a great mix of presentations and the opportunity to connect with like-minded HE colleagues.

All ucisa groups are made up of dedicated people who volunteer their time to collaborate on improving educational technology services and our group is made up of 14 people from across the UK who continually amaze me with their enthusiasm and will to make Support Services the very best they can be. I already know that Deborah is really keen to continue to foster collaboration across the sector and to encourage ucisa groups to make an impact on a bigger scale, so I will be coming to you and asking what you want to see from ucisa in the coming months.
