Curriculum for Digital Education Leadership

Just wanted to share a recent concept paper published by COL describing a holistic approach to digital education leadership (also recently shared in 'Digital Literacies Teaching & Learning' G+ community). The proposed curriculum framework is built on a social and situated view of digital literacies -- described in detail in the paper.

The concept paper was authored by a team from CILT at the University of Cape Town -- Cheryl Brown, +Laura Czerniewicz, Cheng-Wen Huang, and Tabisa Mayisela -- with input from an advisory group including +Helen Beetham, Ibrar Bhatt, Lesley Gourlay, Paul Prinsloo, myself, and others; all of us honoured to have taken part in the project.

Networked Learning Conference 2016

#NLC2016  concluded at Lancaster University yesterday - nearly 3 days of presentations, workshops, symposia and too many great conversations to count. It was a joy to facilitate our symposium (hashtag #NLbridge ) with +Laura P Gogia and +Frances Bell, the result of 18 months of thinking, talking and writing about networked learning, connected learning, and open education. Here's the link to our presentation, including 2 video vignettes, which we used to kick start some terrific discussion and debate. Blog posts to follow :) In the meantime, however, here are links to our abstract and 3 individual papers:

Following the recent ePortfolio conference in Dublin, including a wonderful keynote by +Helen Beetham, I blogged a few thoughts re: digital identity. #digilit

Digital capability models and policies provide an important starting point for institutions. But without caring hands to craft them in specific contexts, and a willingness to co-create new paths with and for staff and students, the models will not yield their potential, i.e. to help individuals to develop powerful digital identities and gain opportunities for voice, influence and growth.

+Helen Beetham gave a wonderful keynote at the recent ePortfolio conference here in Dublin entitled What is 'Digital Wellbeing?'. In the post, Helen provides useful contextual information for the Six Capabilities model developed for Jisc, and the motivation for the centrality of digital identity & wellbeing in that model. Well worth a read. #digilit

What an amazing evening at the Cúirt 'Literary Supper' at Kai in Galway. Thank you +Leigh Wolf for sharing an unforgettable evening of poetry, conversation & amazing food. I can still hear Seamus Heaney's voice -- recorded 2 years ago here in Galway -- in my ears today.
