Staffordshire University to host free Digital Literacy event

Staffordshire University is to host a free Library TeachMeet event, sponsored by the CILIP Information Literacy Group, with the aim of sharing how to incorporate digital literacy into teaching and learning.

Event: Staffordshire University Digital Literacy Library TeachMeet – Sponsored by the CILIP Information Literacy Group
Alfred Bolton Room, Thompson Library, Staffordshire University, College Road, Stoke-on-Trent, Staffs, ST4 2DE.
When: Tuesday, November 25th, 2014, 1.15pm-4pm.

It is hoped that speakers will report on a range of activities to support and assess learners towards digital fluency and investigate what makes a digitally fluent learner.

Attendees are invited to have the floor for 10 minutes to present (via PowerPoint / Prezi / talk / bingo / drawing / anything) to colleagues some creative and inspiring suggestions. Enthusiastic non-presenting audience members are also welcome!

Example topics might include: staff development and promotion, incorporating digital literacy ideas into the curriculum, highlighting digital literacy as a Graduate Attribute, etc. Anyone can share great ideas they’ve used in their library, ask important questions or simply sign up to take part in learning conversations.

How does it work?

The event organisers would like attendees to consider delivering a presentation, of up to 10 minutes maximum, on an innovative topic in line with the theme. The number of speakers will be limited, so please get your application in early if you would like to do this. The organisers also want an audience who are happy to discuss, share ideas and develop learning opportunities.

When is it?

1.15pm–4pm on Tuesday, November 25th, 2014. Arrival from 1.15pm onwards (for lunch and networking) and refreshments will be served throughout the event.

How do I book a place?
