Additional Tickets Now Available for Friday's Free Online Presentation About Visitors and Residents Project
Attend this free online presentation by to learn more about the JISC-funded Visitors and Residents project.
Students and staff have been developing their own digital literacies for years and successfully integrating them into their social and professional activities. The Visitors and Residents project has been capturing these literacies by interviewing participants within four educational stages from secondary school to experienced scholars. Using the Visitors and Residents idea as a framework the project has been mapping what motivates individuals and groups to engage with the Web for learning. Lynn Silipigni Connaway and David White have been exploring the information-seeking and learning strategies that are evolving in both personal and professional contexts. In this presentation, they will discuss these emerging user-owned literacies and how they might integrate with institutional approaches to developing digital literacies. They will also discuss the Visitors and Residents mapping process and how this could be utilized by projects as a tool for reflecting on existing and potential literacies and the development of services and systems.
JISC has just released 100 additional tickets for this free online event. A link to the event registration page is below.
