Making sense of learning in a digital age, report from a guest lecture by Helen Beetham

[This post is taken from a full blog post available in our brand new DigiLearnBlog.]

This is a long overdue blog post about a fantastic and challenging Halloween day-experience with Helen Beetham, consultant for the JISC Digital Literacies programme (amongst other talents and expertise) who came to deliver a guest lecture (slides) and workshop at the University of Liverpool.

In front of a 70-strong audience of Liverpool academics, Helen explored the uncanny relationship between digital know-how and academic learning. The event was hosted by our Developing Digital Literacies Working Group and Educational Development.

It is worth it!

Thank you,
