Homepage for the case studies:


We use the term ‘digital identity’ to refer to the online representation of an individual within a community, as adopted by that individual and projected by others.  An individual may have multiple digital identities in multiple communities.


Eduserv have recently funded three projects on digital identity as a result of our 2008 grants call. This workshop will help the projects gather case-studies about the ways in which digital identity is currently manifest in UK higher education.


This event is aimed at people who have an interest in the issues around digital identity in higher education including employers, HR staff, careers guidance staff, standards experts, students and academics.


Prior to the workshop we will be collecting a series of “stories” about digital identity from people attending the event. On the day, we will be working in groups to discuss and add to the stories. Following this, we will analyse the stories in order to find reoccurring themes or patterns.


We would like to invite all attendees to register for the Pattern Language Network (PLANET) site and look at some of the stories which have been written for the event. In addition we would be grateful if attendees could submit their own stories. The more stories we receive, the more potential there will be to find recurring patterns and to understand the important issues associated with digital identity.
