JISC is funding scholarship places at the SEDA Summer School 2012
Academic Development for the
Digital University is the title of the 11th SEDA Summer School
for academic developers. The Summer School runs from July 9th – 11th
2012 at Cumberland Lodge in
Windsor Great Park.
This SEDA Summer School is
intended for colleagues whose role includes helping their institution to
increase and enhance the appropriate use of digital technologies, and hence
supporting staff with the development of their digital literacies.
Developing Digital Literacies Programme has identified the SEDA Summer
School an opportunity to bring together staff within funded projects and staff
from other institutions to discuss, share, and further extend their approaches
to the development of digital literacies within their institutions.
So JISC would like to encourage projects and interested
institutions to consider supporting a member of their team (or institution or a
partner institution) to attend this SEDA Summer School. JISC is happy to
confirm that that attendance at this development event is a legitimate use of
JISC project funds.
JISC is offering
12 scholarship places. Each will pay £400
towards the cost of attending the event (full price £795). These scholarships
are open to members of any institution normally eligible to receive JISC
funding. To apply for a scholarship place, please:·
The deadline for scholarship applications is Monday the 30th
April. Decisions will be notified early in May.
- Confirm that, if
your scholarship application is successful, you will attend the Summer School;
- Send a note
of some 500 words which explains the particular issue on which you will work
with other participants at the Summer School (email to firstname.lastname@example.org);
- Participate with
the intention to focus on developing digital literacies in your institution;
- Agree to produce
a short blog post on your reflections/actions from attending the event, to be
posted on your project/personal blog or the JISC e-Learning blog site.
