Just back from London after a really successful workshop on dashboards, displays, reports and other measures to change user behaviour. This was held at the London campus of Coventry University. Strangely that is yo be found near Liverpool Street – and right across the road is the London Campus of UEA. Any other sightings of provincial universities London outlets should be reported here!
This was the 3rd workshop on this subject that we have run. It followed on from the on at Oxford last summer - see an earlier blog psit for the presentation from that – and one held in the autumn in Manchester – see:
The workshop was an opportunity for the project team from Coventry University to talk about the CUSTOMER project – see an earlier blog posting for details – which has been renamed following feedback from students as green@CU. Also presenting were teams from Manchester Metropolitan University on their engagement activities as well as The University of Bedford on their work in reducing energy use in labs (Project Delta).
A full report on the workshop, along with the presentations will appear on the Good Campus Website shortly:
What was of particular interest this time was the varied communities from which the participants had come and the amount of expertise. The discussion in the small groups was very rewarding as it was instructed by people with handson experience of installing and running energy dashboards and behaviour change programmes around energy use, and people with a research interest in the field.
We are now looking at what further workshops on this and other topics on Green ICT we should be looking to run though 2012.
