Hello. My name is Hilary Woods and I am the Staff Digital Leader for Inclusion at City and Islington College. I also support staff with the use of emerging technologies for teaching, learning and assessment in the Centre for Business, Arts and Technology.
I recently attended a Round Table which was hosted by Julian Bream. Topics included: Creating Digital Ambassadors, Inspiring tutors to let learners lead digitally, Digital literacies built in to everything and Enterprise, Employability and Digital – making the connection.
I just wanted to let others know about the experience. The meeting was very well attended and some of the Student Digital Ambassadors from CBAT and SFC were there. They presented with Kerry Vandersteen on how the Digital Ambassador Programme works at City and Islington College. Their contribution to the session was invaluable.
Round table participants came from a variety of educational settings. It was extremely useful to exchange ideas and ways of working with colleagues from other venues. It was also an excellent opportunity to network with other education professionals.
If you are interested in exploring developments in education and sharing best practice, I would highly recommend that you find the time to go to one of Julian’s future round tables if possible.
