A delegation from Saudi Arabia have participated in a workshop on the strategic use of digital technology and skills development as part of a series of events planned for their visit to the UK, Germany and Washington D.C.
have just come back running a day and half workshop around the Strategic Use of TEL in Higher Education - it was a specific workshop to start off a series of events and workshops for the NCEL International Courses, organised by The International Academy for Educational Consultancy and Professional Development http://www.iaecpd.com/. The group that I had the pleasure of working with was a group of academics and senior managers from Saudi Arabia.
The prezi I used can be accessed here: http://prezi.com/yjbtwgo5jbfw/?utm_campaign=share&utm_medium=copy
The group will be spending around 10 days in the UK and will be exploring a range of activities using a variety of tools, including iPads. Throughout the workshop they identified how important digital literacies were to any kind of innovation. One of the most interesting activities was a look at the challenges associated with becoming an innovative institution, this sparked some interesting conversations.
It was great fun, and I hope that they enjoy their time in the UK (and come back soon!)
