What is LCF-Ology?

It’s a new approach to staff development that provides a mix of informal and formal learning opportunities, with an opportunity to eat good food and network.

It provides a safe space away from the demands of work, a space to learn about some of the digital and technical possibilities at LCF, a space to ask the questions that you sometimes don’t get the opportunity to ask. It also provides the chance to provide feedback – and hopefully put aside the ‘infrastructure issues’ (for a moment) and focus on practice and possibilities.

Dial at the LCF-Ology – get involved!

Room 418a – Chris Follows – 11:00 – 15:00

The DIAL project (Digital Integration into Arts Learning) is a two year JISC funded digital literacies (DL) project at UAL. The DIAL project aims to improve graduate employability and bring about cultural change by developing confidence and capability in the adoption and integration of digitally enhanced learning for staff and students.

DIAL will encourage, support and collaborate with ‘staff led’ fellowships, secondments and projects’ to mutual benefit of the staff involved and the common good.
