We have completed our baseline report, which summarises what we know about digital literacy practices amongst staff and students at the Institute. This includes some early analysis of the data from the focus groups and an outline of the work planned for the remainder of this first year, including multimodal journalling by students and research into institutional readiness for change.
Lesley & I were invited to Lancaster to present work relating to the project. In the talk we discussed ideas around technology, practice, agency and materiality, using early data from the project to show how they relate to digital literacies. The slides from the event are available on slideshare, and a recording of the talk will be made available soon.
Julie Hall, co-chair of SEDA, has put up a blog post outlining SEDA’s role in the JISC digital literacies programme. This project is explicitly mentioned in the post, as we were the only successful application that wrote SEDA in as a partner. SEDA’s programme-wide role focuses on events, dissemination and links into the professional development framework.
