Last Friday we had the privilege of welcoming Lyn Greaves and her colleagues at the University of West London to present some of the findings from their JISC-funded work on an Anytime Learning Literacies Environment (ALLE). Slides, audio and a recording of the Blackboard Collaborate session can be found below:
Lyn Greaves from the University of West London will share the findings of the JISC-funded ALLE project. The session will run from 14:00 on Friday 20th January 2012 and Lyn’s overview can be found below:
Whilst there is a wealth of experience across the sector in supporting digital and information literacies with our learners, it is often dispersed and difficult for students most in need to access at the appropriate point in their studies. They need the very skills they are searching for before they can find them. Using the LLiDA findings our response was the development of a digital learning literacy environment.
The literacy environment is comprised of a series of learning objects organised in three parts: the Academic Journey, the Library Learning Journey and Digital Tools for Learning. The literacy environment has been used and evaluated by over 200 first-year business students.
As well as creating new resources, existing interactive materials customised for generic reuse were brought together in a cohesive and structured framework enclosed in a wraparound shell. We will share how we made effective use of ‘best’ pedagogy knowledge and resources to maximise OER potential.
