#oxtalent2017: a record year for entries

Entries for this year’s OxTALENT competition closed last Friday night, and we’re delighted to announce a record haul of 87: 10 more than last year’s record! Once again, the research posters category attracted the greatest number of entries, but we had a good spread across the other five categories, with digital media and data visualisation making a good showing. In a year which has seen a major consultation around the Digital Education Strategy we have received creative and thoughtfully designed examples of technology enhanced learning. And difficult choices also face the judges in the outreach & widening participation and public engagement categories.

The judges are deliberating this week, but their decisions will remain under wraps until the awards ceremony on 14th June. We’ll publish the details as the awards are announced and will issue a special News from Academic IT alert the next day.
