We now have two more recorded webinars available from the module Digital Literacies and Open Practice. The first was a bonus webinar given a few weeks ago by Sam Aston and Chris Millson from the University of Manchester. Sam and Chris teach on the module ‘Open Knowledge in Higher Education‘ which inspired me to set up this course after I was a guest lecturer on it a few years ago running a session with Chris Morrison. Their webinar has a number of activities you can take part in to help you think about what open practice means and how to make small changes in your own teaching. A recording is available here.
The second webinar is from the editors of one of the set readings for this course, Jo Parker and Katharine Reedy who wrote Digital Literacies Unpacked. They talk about the approach to learning design at the Open University and how digital literacies, (but also employability and other skills) are embedded into the curriculum. A recording and the slides are available.
