Webinar: Digital Literacy Skills for FE Teachers

Posted on

I am hosting a webinar with Martin Lewarne of its learning on the 24th September, at 15:00 (GMT). You can find more details on this free webinar and register here.

The session is primarily aimed at leaders and managers within the FE and Skills sector, but teachers will also find it useful.

In the session we intend to cover the following:

  • Increasing digital user engagement among staff and meet the recommendations of the FELTAG Report
  • Meeting students’ expectations of online learning and digital technology
  • Supporting enhanced online communication and collaboration across the College and FE sector

The first 20 attendees will also win a copy of my new book.

This Webinar is a great opportunity to join in the conversation about digital literacy and online learning that is going on across the FE and Skills sector.

Digital.Me: Managing your Digital Self is a new MOOC being run by the University of Derby Online Learning. It runs from the 6 July for six weeks and is completely free to study.

The course poses the question; “Ever wondered what your digital persona says about your relationship with the Web?”. A very pertinent question for any one interested interested in their own presence online and the wider subject of digital identity management.

Web Science MOOC

Posted on

I am going to become an online learner again this week through participation in a MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) from FutureLearn called Web Science: How the Web is Changing the World (more information on the course can be found in a Blog post I have just published on informationliteracy.org.uk here). The course content sounds extremely interesting, as it explores how we make sense of the Web’s 25 year history and its effect on the World. I hope to use the experience to gain deeper understanding of the digital age society we live in and build upon ideas I am developing in my book on digital literacy. I will blog about the experience of learning through a MOOC in the coming weeks. The course starts on October 6th.
