It may not win any oscars, but this is a combination of clips from 6 members of ODHE, collected at the Crewe National meetup – an encouraging end to the project:
Yesterday’s session at the ODHE Group national meeting, which included a report from Cindy Vallance re the blog, and the potential future for the blog.
For those in the ODHE group, we are seeking responses to end-of-project survey (deadline 23rd October)
The following website is being launched at the webinar just starting:
The framework’s central purpose is to help those seeking to enhance the learning experience of their students, by improving the quality of their teaching and learning support. If you have a substantive role in the education of students or staff, it will be relevant to your situation. The Framework provides a means to comprehensively benchmark, develop, recognise & reward teaching and learning support roles within higher education.
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.
As part of the Changing the Learning Landscape programme, the Higher Education Academy and CLL partners (including Jisc) are putting on 12 workshops assist academic staff, and staff with curriculum development and support roles, in the use of technology to enhance teaching and student learning.
Four of these workshops, developed in association with SEDA, are focusing on digital literacies:
30 April 2013 (Leeds) Influencing strategy and change processes to enable the embedding of digital literacies
29 May 2013 (Birmingham) The role of digital literacies in supporting continuing professional development in HE contexts
The workshops are designed to be accessible to those new to the field of digital literacies and learning technologies, and are aimed at anyone with a staff/educational/teaching development aspect to their role, and to curriculum leaders, professional services and support staff. For further information on these, and to sign up, go to www.heacademy.ac.uk/cll/development
There are also eight workshops aimed at academic staff in a range of disciplines. For a full list of CLL workshops, please see www.heacademy.ac.uk/cll
Today, after more inspiring OD talks, we started to think about what practically we could provide as blog posts… reminding ourselves, that with about 40 in the group, if we aim for weekly posts, people need only write one post a year, plus 12 guest posts… entirely achievable:
The ODHE is working within the JISC ‘Digital Literacies’ programme, which is introduced as follows:
Many learners enter further and higher education lacking the skills needed to apply digital technologies to education. As 90% of new jobs will require excellent digital skills, improving digital literacy is an essential component of developing employable graduates.
Courses that embed core digital skills, as well as subject specific use of technology, enable students to gain the skills and confidence they need to use digital technology not only to support their learning but also in the workplace.
JISC have offered a document which enables institutions to think about the digital literacy capabilities they have – a useful exercise to encourage thinking about what, and why … and potentially pushing towards change.
