JISC is funding scholarship places at the SEDA Summer School 2012

Posted on: Monday 12 March 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.

The JISC 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.

Further 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:·        

  • 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 office@seda.ac.uk);        
  • 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.
The deadline for scholarship applications is Monday the 30th April. Decisions will be notified early in May.
