I am delighted to welcome Emer Coleman to GDS, as Deputy Director of Digital Engagement. We have always supported digital engagement at GDS, and Emer’s appointment will raise our game as we develop more products and services with partners and developers inside and outside Government. Emer’s experience in Government, and particularly in freeing-up transport data and her work at the Greater London Authority, means we have another great talent at the Government Digital Service.Here is why Emer is joining, in her own words:
"I have been fortunate to have been working in the field of open data and open governance for the past two years in my role as Director of Digital Projects in the Greater London Authority. In that time my focus has been on London as a city and how collaboration between technologists and the state can create conditions where innovation flourishes to the benefit of the citizen. I hope my experience in London will benefit GDS as it continues its journey to embed digital by default across the whole of Government. I am grateful for the opportunity to be part of revolutionising Government digital services, if not a little daunted to say the least. I hope that the collaboration with those interested in the public realm, which was the hallmark of my work in the London Datastore, continues and grows in my role in GDS. I look forward to continuing that conversation".

I work with the National Digital Learning Resources (NDLR) service in Ireland which is a collaborative HEA funded service involving all higher education Institutions in Ireland, the premise of which is to foster the use, reuse and development of open digital learning resources amongst the academic community in Ireland.
The intention of the NDLR service is to raise awareness of best practice and reduce the duplication of effort amongst the HE community through support of collaborative projects and exchange of ideas, learning content and practice. The Open agenda encompassing issues such as Open Access, Open Data, Open Standards, Open Source and Open Borders is one that has a growing impact on a wide range of issues in research and higher education . It is in this context that we would like to extend an invitation to you to present the keynote at this event.
The NDLR Fest 2012: 6th Annual Showcase for Irish Digital Learning Resources is taking place on Wednesday the 2nd May, in Croke Park, Dublin, Ireland.
The NDLR Fest 2012 is expected to be attended by over 250 higher education academics with another 150 virtually attending through the live streaming of the event. The main aim of the NDLR Fest is to showcase the wide array of free technology enhanced learning resources that have been generated across all subject disciplines in the Irish HE sector as well as celebrating the cooperative and collaborative process in which these resources have been developed, used and reused.
Looking forward to hearing your response.
