The DITG is a self-organised group of IT professionals in departments and non-college institutions in the University, intended as a means of fostering communication and collaboration within the University IT community, and to provide a forum for discussion, debate, and sharing information of interest to its members.
If you provide IT support for your department or institution and would like to find out more or join the DITG, feel free to send an e-mail to the steering group. (email@example.com) or sign up for our opt-in mailing list
The DITG was founded in 2006 as a result of discussions between departmental IT support providers, particularly those who had been members of the College IT Management Group, and the Computing Service’s Institution Strategy division. The DITG is a self-organised group of IT professionals in departments and non-college institutions in the University and is intended as a means of fostering communication within the University IT community and to provide a forum for discussion, debate, and sharing information of interest to its members.
The entire DITG is made up of people who manage and support IT facilities for non-college institutions within the University, be they technicians, computer officers, or ‘other’. The main group meets 4 times per year; twice in term time and twice out of term. Because this field of potential members is so large, a steering group has been formed in order to facilitate the planning of meetings and other events. This steering group is made up of 12 members of the main group and meets as many times as needed per year in order to plan meetings and other gatherings and to act on any administrative tasks assigned by the main group.
Topic groups are smaller subsets of the larger group that are created for specific tasks. These groups may be long-lived, such as the Sidgwick Cluster or the CamSIS TG, or relatively short-lived, such as the VoIP group. Topic Groups report back to the main group about their findings, if appropriate, and will generally meet more often than the larger group. User groups are groups made up of people who share similar interests, but will not necessarily report to the main group about their meetings. User groups that have already formed are the ‘Database Management’ group and the ‘Lone Computer Officer’ group.
If you provide IT support for your department or institution and would like to join the DITG, feel free to send an email to the steering group. (firstname.lastname@example.org) or sign up for our opt-in mailing list.
