We have been working on the baseline report for the last couple of months and today we held a (festive!) workshop with 20 people representing students, lecturers, support and professional staff.
Participants worked in groups and with great enthusiasm on a number of topics, wrote a letter to Santa with their wishes for Developing Digital Literacies at the University, and told us what digital literacies mean to them (Digitally ReadyPT_Agenda191211).
The purpose of the workshop was to gather the views from the various stakeholders which will feed in the baselining exercise. We will be posting more on this!
This was a really interesting workshop from a participant point of view, especially so because we had representation from the student body. A couple of those students were in our ‘team’ and I we took the opportunity to ask them lots of questions while we had them there. More student involvement in the future would definitely be a good thing.
My general feeling is that – as a University – we’re not doing too badly, though there’s lots of room to improve how we communicate digital knowledge within the organisation, especially to our student body … in a meaningful and engaging way.
I love the ‘Letters to Santa’ – what a creative and festive idea! 🙂
