Chris Follows will lead an open discussion around issues being addressed by the DIAL project.

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

DIAL will explore the pace of technological change and its impact on the day-to-day practices of its staff and students. As education merges in the rapidly expanding field of social and cultural technological change, maintaining progressive practice in these new digitally enhanced learning spaces can presents new expectations, anxieties and challenges for all.

Chris will introduce the groups and individuals currently involved in the DIAL project and discuss their aims and objectives and how you can be involved.

Ruth Powell will present the new portfolio system that allows students to create custom web pages and gives them complete control over page sharing.

http://workflow.arts.ac.uk is a highly flexible e-portfolio system which allows users to store their media files in the cloud, and design and publish web pages with full control over sharing options. It was introduced at UAL to support personal development and learner-centric learning and teaching. To date it has been used for the presentation of graphic design work for assessment, as a vehicle for personal development for painting students, and as a tool for tutors to aggregate web-based content (blog feeds, videos, photo galleries, etc.) on custom designed pages for course work. CLTAD are actively developing the tool, adding new features to allow greater personalisation of content, and supporting its use through workshops and one-to-one training.
