Transforming assessment and feedback resources

This week sees the launch of a set of new pages in the JISC Design Studio around Transforming Assessment and Feedback. These now form a hub for existing and emergent work in this area where, under a series of themes, you can explore what we currently know about enhancing assessment and feedback practice with technology, find links to resources and keep up to date with outputs from the Assessment and Feedback and other current JISC programmes. This is a dynamic set of resources that will be updated as the programme progresses.

JISC on Air: Digital Literacy – delivering the agenda within colleges and universities

Podcast iconJISC has a series of bi-monthly ‘radio shows’ (podcasts) for busy senior managers called JISC on Air. These shows offer insight and inspiration by revealing the ways institutions address key challenges in learning, teaching and course management with the help of digital technologies.

The latest episode of JISC on Air features people and projects involved in the JISC Developing Digital Literacies programme:

In the sixth episode of our online radio programmes – JISC On Air – we are exploring how universities and colleges can help teaching staff, researchers, support and administrative staff to develop their digital literacies – those capabilities which prepare an individual for living, learning and working in a digital society. In part two of the show, we will be looking at how digital literacy underpins the academic success and employability of students.

Professional Behaviours

Myles Danson is a JISC Programme Manager involved in the Associations strand of the JISC Developing Digital Literacies programme. At this week’s conference for the Association of University Administrators (AUA) he ran a session with JISC infoNet Director Patrick Bellis.

The session featured a section entitled What skills do we need for the digital age? The future of the departmental administrator which included some useful resources that readers may find useful. In particular the group work around ‘capabilities for the digitally literate administrator’ looks to have had useful outputs.
