5 SLiDA Case Studies

6 Key findings from Slida 1 WHAT are institutions doing to support the development of learners for a digital age? 1.Preparing students for their experience of learning with technology 2.Enabling learners to use their own devices and services 3.Reconfiguring campus spaces for social learning 4.Listening to learner voices 5.A strategic emphasis on course design for blended learning

7 Key findings from SLiDA 2 HOW are institutions implementing their strategies and policies for developing learners for a digital age? process audit multiple projects people student- led many stakeholders context discipline program

8 Activity 1 Visit each of the posters (4 mins x 5 posters) Listen, question, leave a sticker: Green: we are already doing this, and evaluating it Yellow: we are starting to do this Red: we arent doing this

9 HOW findings from Slida 2 1.Use audit tools to find out where you are and to help agree where change is needed 2.Factor in time to consult about the nature of digital literacy 3.Contextualise digital literacies within the discipline/programme, using stories, examples, frameworks 4.Involve lots of different people 5.Start with what students already know and use 6.Build respectful, two way relationships with students 7.Support incremental progression

10 Activity 2 Go back to one of the posters where you would like to effect change Form a group or groups of 4-6 Use the HOW findings to plan how to take this forward at your institutions Be prepared to feedback What would help me take this forward is….

11 What would help me take this forward is -

12 What next? JISC-funded programme on whole-institution approaches to digital literacy development (watch this space) JISC Digital Literacy workshops: – 26 May London – 23 June Birmingham – 22 September Manchester – 6 October Bristol For more information: SLIDA case studies: wiki.brookes.ac.uk/display/slida LliDA best practice examples and materials
