I’m hosting a webinar on Thursday 3rd December from 11am-12pm with Katharine Reedy and Hossam Kassem from the Open University. They will be talking about embedding digital literacy in the curriculum. The webinar is open to all and going to be run in MS Teams.

If you would like to join then do drop me a line, so I have an idea of numbers as it’s open to those not taking the module as well. I will send you the link to the meeting.

The Open University has a strong, and lengthy, track record, both in developing digital and information literacy products and services, and embedding the skills into the curriculum. We have been using learning design approaches to embed the skills, working in partnership with others across the university, including curriculum teams, Librarians and Learning Designers. During 2020 we have continued to evolve our approach and share it with colleagues in the wider sector to support the move to online learning.

Join Katharine  (editor along with Jo Parker of Digital Literacy Unpacked, from Facet publishing) and Hossam (a member of the Library Live Engagement team and Accessibility Lead) to hear about the OU experience.
