4.3 Digital Integration into Arts Learning (DIAL) (Chris Follows)
· This is a two-year project, funded by JISC. Chris has been appointed project manager.
· DIAL will engage self-identified communities across UAL who would like to improve their digital literacy.
· It was noted that ‘digital literacy’ means different things in different contexts.
· The evaluation of digital tools is important for the project. Their effective use can have a strong impact on academic liaison and student induction.
