2012’s three editions of Inform brought together a wide variety of stories designed to focus on the issues that readers say matter most. You asked for stories on tools and techniques to help you do more with less as budget cuts bite harder. You also encouraged us to focus on the crucial issues of enhancing the student experience and student engagement as they become paying customers and realise that they are in the driving seat when it comes to demanding value.
