    by Andrew Eynon

    Dr Andrew Eynon, Coleg Llandrillo

    This session will look at recent developments in the Welsh Information Literacy project which include embedding the Welsh Information Literacy Framework with public and school library services across Wales.

    In particular, we have developed with Agored Cymru accredited learning in information literacy skills. Furthermore, we have identified information literacy champions in each local authority library service in Wales to help support infomation literacy skills development amongst public library staff and users.

    Andrew has worked in FE for over 20 years - He is currently project manager of the Welsh Information Literacy Project (WILP) - a cross sector intiative funded by the Welsh Government - focussing on the development of IL skills in schools and amongst the general public in Wales. He is also project manager of the JISC PADDLE project which is looking at developing digital literacy skills amongst staff and learners in the 4 FE colleges in North Wales.

    Andrew is a former Chair of the Colleges of Further & Higher Education group of CILIP, a former Chair of Colegau Cymru's Learning Resource Managers' Network and Editor of the 7th edition of the CoFHE guidelines and author of FE learning resource toolkits in both England and Wales.

  • Learning Through Social Connection

    by Hannah Gore

    With the changes in the HE landscape, there has been a recent emergence of 'social learning' - informal learning taking place on social platforms and within online learning communities.

    SocialLearn is the latest evolution of online learning from The Open University, providing an effectual learning space that gives users the control of what and how they learn, and with whom, by harnessing the power of the web and the energy of social networking.

    Hannah Gore, Producer of Social Learning and Syndication at The Open University will present the concept behind the creation of SocialLearn and a demonstration of the platform, its range of features and potential uses.
