Hands on coding: web development: Session 1 | process.arts | Developing digital Literacies | Scoop.it
Chris Follows's insight:

Last night we held the first web development training session of the online identities project 'Introduction to web development: Session 1' at Central Saint Martins, UAL. It was a first for many of the students who attended and everyone seemed to have really enjoy their first coding experience. The tutor was Simon King from Camberwell College of Arts, Simon demonstrated the basic principles of web coding, teaching the basics of HTML and CSS using free downloadable software called Sublime Text 2.

Online Identities Pilot Programme 2013/14 | process.arts

Online Identities Pilot Programme 2013/14 | process.arts | Developing digital Literacies | Scoop.it
Chris Follows's insight:

This pilot programme will explore the challenges and benefits of delivering web making support training for final year students and staff on the Performance Design and Practice (PDP) course at Central Saint Martins, although we would welcome all interest and contributions into future development from all UAL staff and students. Once we have the formal programme fully developed and tested we aim to showcase our findings and experience as good practice to UAL and the sector and look for this training to be better supported and embeded. We would also like to start developing online learning resources (short animations and videos) for all the programme activities and create a online course.

 

The DIAL project found many staff and students were lacking vital basic web building knowledge and skills, students and staff have told us they would appreciative some advice and support in this area. There was a general feeling that having a basic understanding of web environments, processes and developments should be viewed as a important requirement of any professional, training professional and practitioner. Read more about DIAL student engagement.

Support a cross college collaborative approach to policy and official terms associated to being a ‘digital literate university’ through referencing practice and active case studies:

 

Debate and define UALs institutional understanding of terms associated with ‘Digital literacies’ within all aspects creative practice, including media literacies, information literacies, digital practice, digital citizenship, online identities, digital/social/cultural competencies, participatory culture, digital scholarship, digital attributes, open practice, digital fluency etc. with an aim of publishing an ‘institutional’ evidence base of UAL glossary of terms based on an iterative process of practical, subject and interest specific case study evidence.

Developing digital literacy @ GSA | process.arts

DIAL’s advocacy for sustained cultural change has been an invaluable inspiration in evaluating and refining our priorities and approach. DIAL’s participative, forward-looking and integrated perspective has highlighted the important areas of staff/ student collaboration, harnessing the power of mutually supportive practice communities and the merits of embedding relevant technology in purpose/subject-specific contexts. The DIAL resources attached to these core attributes have influenced a staged approach at GSA which aims to provide developmental and iterative initiatives to support existing expertise as well as encourage adapted forms of engaging with emerging technologies.

OER13 conference, Call for abstracts closes 31 Oct

OER13 conference, Call for abstracts closes 31 Oct | Developing digital Literacies | Scoop.it

With the title Creating a virtuous circle, this conference focuses on how we can build on the last ten years of investment in open educational resources and move to the creation of a virtuous circle of open educational practice? How to be a virtuous rather than a vicious circle and an open rather than a closed one.

 

OER13 is inviting abstracts for papers/posters within its three key themes of:  Evidence - Experience - Expectation

 

We anticipate presentations which will share lessons learned to inform the feedback loop, stories of current activity to share good practice, and creative solutions to achieve greater emphasis on openness in education.

 

Booking will open shortly with the price of this two day conference including one night accommodation on campus at £205 (including celebration reception and gala dinner). An exciting programme which we hope that many will want to be part of.

IT UAL and DIAL collaborations | DIAL

Following my meeting with the Strategic Development SMT 22 May 12 Stephen Reid, Deputy Rector put me in contact with John Brown UALs director of IT. We had a very productive and long conversation about the digital at UAL. John then introduced me to Justin Banbury‎ and Steve Howells‎ who are key IT contacts and potential DIAL collaborators to work with in the areas of digital capacity and demand, they are also involved in a UAL wide digital capacity project called ‘digital life’. John, Justin and Steve were all very interested in the UAL digital baseline project and I’ve invited them to join and contribute to this UAL wide network.

Chris Follows's insight:

It was really great to meet some of the students from the Performance Design and Practice (PDP) course at Central Saint Martins who are helping us kick off the Online Identities Pilot Programme 2013/14.

We started the session by discussing and sharing our perceptions of Online Identities project, and there was a strong feeling around the table that the area of web making/development is very important to professional practice development and needs more support, so this project was very welcome.

We went through some of the details of the project and we continued an informal conversation, which we all really enjoyed and agreed that we should include ‘informal chats’ in future planning of the programme and maybe at the end of each session.
