UAL Learning & Teaching Day 2014 - Developing Practice Based Arts Massive Open Online Learning Communities UAL Learning & Teaching Day 2014

Crossing Borders: Enhancing Teaching and Learning at UAL
This year the Centre for Learning and Teaching Art and Design (CLTAD)'s Learning and Teaching day theme Crossing Borders will explore how collaboration, in its many forms, can support students' learning. The conference will be held on Wednesday 15th of January, 2014 at Chelsea College of Art,6 John Islip Street, London, SW1P 4JU.

Brief description of session and activities
Chris Follows: DIAL Project Manager, Digital Integration into arts Learning (DIAL), CLTAD

This presentation aims to explore and question the challenges, motivations and benefits of staff and students participating in massive open online learning communities, as a casual observer and/or as an active contributor. How important is being online as a learner and/or teacher to our careers and creative practice?

Chris Follows will draw from his experiences of the following online open educational practice, projects, interests and activities:

The agile development of process.arts.ac.uk
The Arts Learning and Teaching projects ALTO & ALTO UK
A year long Open University SCORE Fellowship
And the Digital Integration into Arts Learning (DIAL) project
Chris will summarise a broad selection of the key findings, issues and lessons learned from across these projects, interests and activities and relate these to the current technological and pedagogical challenges facing the HE sector today, including staff and student engagement and use of online technology for enhancing learning and teaching practice.

Chris will draw on Visitors and Residents principle: A useful typology for online engagement
 by David S. White and Alison Le Cornu to highlight many of the evolving agile open online Innovation and activities here at UAL.

Chris will introduce and invite participation in a new initiative http://www.artsmooc.org: a new experimental social enterprise approach to integrating online open educational practice into practical face-to-face based arts subjects, bringing together a unique ‘hands on’ research and development network/consortium.

Artsmooc focuses on addressing the digital/web literacies challenges based on the creative needs of its stakeholder groups by co-developing and creating new arts MOOCs Massive open online course/communities, learning environments and interest groups with and for its stakeholders.

How will students be involved in the session?
Updates from DIAL Student researchers and ambassadors will be included in the session. A student may be invited from the current Professional Online Identities Pilot Programme 2013/14

What will participants take away from the session?
New perspectives on open educational practice and the developing professional online identities.

Resources are organised by either project groups or clustered by related tags Many other DIAL related projects: Research groups, conference groups, experimental groups and new projects in the early stages of development receive support and advice from DIAL
  • 11. What deliverables did the project produce? Open Educational Resources (OERs) including: DIAL Digital literacies model and approach Video Resources Workshops/teaching templates Activities for units Case studies New prototypes Open Practice unit development Open UAL/Scholarship Policy document Digital Literacies UAL Glossary of Terms and new standards Emerging definitions of Digital Literacies at UAL Approaches for assessing Digital Literacy Levels Impacts: The DIAL project and groups “The DIAL resources attached to these core attributes have influenced a staged approach at Glasgow School of Art which aims to provide developmental and iterative initiatives to support existing expertise as well as encourage adapted forms of engaging with emerging technologies.” Read more here on process.arts and DIAL blog ‘Self-identified digital skills and attributes needed to support personal and professional digital practice, ranging from awareness and participation, application of good practice through to participation in emergent and innovative digital practices’. DIAL 2012 “I was the tutor who felt physically sick having to engage with the digital. I can see that potentially it could enhance the student experience and, dare I say it, the tutor experience! However, the language of the digital may as well be in Swahili (sp.?) for all I can understand. I’m grateful that the DIAL team clearly understand this.” See Michael Spencer blog post comment Influenced and supported strategic planning Created new UAL cross college Collaborations for Digital Literacies Support
  • 12. Lessons learned and reflection Tools: •  Bring your own Device (Expected & Essential) •  Bring your own environment (need to support) •  More Course Equipment (Staff and Students) •  Finding a balance between face-to-face and digital People/ Individuals & development: •  Huge need for support in creative online practice •  Huge gap in support for creative online practice •  Lots of fear of not being ‘Digitally Ready’ for online practice •  Managing Expectations •  Guidance and support for Digital Literacies •  A deeper Understanding of what student DLs needs •  Students providing project support •  Open practice and online reflection •  Alumni and post grad/research, need DL support •  Staff and students working and exploring DLs together University Integration: •  Trust & confidence: Dealing with DLs can be tricky and sensitive work. Handle with care •  Small steps towards local strategy •  Partnerships for sustainable growth, exchange expertise College integration •  Understand the disciplines, culture and processes •  Defining DLs and competencies: this needs to be an agile on-going process •  Proof of concept/use case for equipment needs •  Lack of digital strategies in Colleges and sharing of experience Curriculum integration •  •  •  •  •  Huge gap in support for creative online practice How/do we need to embed DLs Communication email & course calendars Teach Digital Literacies in context Little time for DLs with busy courses & teams
