On the 15th November at LCC I had the pleasure of taking part in a SEE Event held as part of Enterprise Week entitled ‘Improving your prospects through online profiles’.
This brought together 6 speakers and a lively audience comprising mainly UAL students and alumni to debate and explore ways in which online profiles can be beneficial – as well as reviewing the potential pitfalls and how to avoid and recover from them. The slides for my presentation are @ http://goo.gl/oLmrv
This was an extremely interesting and enjoyable event which explored a wide variety of themes related to online profiles, digital identity and digital life – for more information have a look @: http://goo.gl/rlYrR
Jo Morrison @ CSM explores what digital literacy means within a dynamic arts and design educational environment and some of her thoughts are captured in a recent blog posting on the ‘Digital Present’ Blog.
As Jo mentions in her posting, colleagues at UAL are putting together a focus group to explore and understand these complex issues in much more detail and the rationale and methodology behind this is explored by Chris Follows in his recent posting about new developments at the DIAL Project.
The new CSM Digital Present Blog has just launched and is well worth visiting! This new blog aims to document and support digital literacy at CSM and offers useful information as well as case studies illustrating current practice.
I recently presented a short paper at the Learning Technology Conference Alt-C 2012 entitled ‘Exploring, understanding and addressing the appetite for change’.
This was the result of a collaboration between Marc Griffith and myself and explored the changes taking place in the e-learning and online environments at UAL.
The slides for this presentation are available at: Exploring, Understanding and Addressing the Appetite for Change – http://goo.gl/HBfRb
