Developing digital literacies webinars

We ran a series of webinars in February-May 2013 to disseminate and discuss the work of the Developing digital literacies projects. Each hour-long webinar discussed an aspect of the programme’s work. The webinars were free and open to all, and recordings of them are available.

Events in this series:

Current issues and approaches in developing digital literacy
Tuesday 12 February, 13.00-14.00
This webinar will discuss what digital literacies are and why it is important for universities and colleges to develop the digital literacies of their students and staff. We will look at some of the issues to consider when planning an institutional approach to developing digital literacies, and projects from Jisc’s Developing Digital Literacies programme will highlight some of the approaches that they have found effective in their own contexts.
A recording of this webinar is now available.

Rising to the digital literacy challenge in further education
Thursday 28 February, 11:00-12:00
This webinar, organised in conjunction with the Jisc regional support centres, provides three different perspectives on how to address the challenge of staff development needs in order to ensure that digital literacies are embedded across the organisation. The two Developing digital literacies projects based in FE colleges, WORDLE and PADDLE, will be speaking at the event.

Supporting the development of staff digital literacies
Thursday 21 March, 12.00-13.00
This webinar will look at approaches to supporting the development of digital literacies of staff in different institutional roles, including teaching staff, administrators, managers, librarians, and researchers. Projects from Jisc’s Developing Digital Literacies programme will highlight some of the approaches that they have found effective with their staff groups, and there will be the opportunity to discuss the issues arising.

Implementing the UKPSF in the digital university
Wednesday 17 April, 13.00-14.00
This webinar offers a guide to implementing the UK professional standards framework in the digital university. We look at how post-graduate certificates in teaching and learning in higher education (PGCertHE) courses and CPD processes are adapting to digital technologies, both in their design and operation and in the educational practices for which the PGCertHEs are preparing staff. We introduce a new wiki including case studies of technology-informed practice, indexed against the UKPSF areas of activity, core knowledge and values.

Digital literacies: changing student practices
Thursday 2 May, 12:00-13:00
This webinar explored how student digital literacies can be supported and developed by a range of types of engagement and activities. We looked at what we can learn from rich data about student digital practices, and discussed some of the ways in which students can operate as change agents in this area to improve not just their own digital literacies but those of other students, and of staff.
A recording of this webinar is now available
