UAL OD&L Digital Literacy
OD&L offer a variety of learning opportunities and are open to suggestions. Opportunities include: classroom training, one-to-one sessions, ‘floor-walking’ visits by trainers, bespoke training and an information service for general ‘how do I?’ queries regarding software.
Learning Studios at UAL
The Learning Studio is a community of practice around learning technology use in Art and Design within UAL. It is open to anyone to join and participate, whatever your role or current use or experience of learning technologies.
CSM has held eight drop-in workshops on the use of digital technologies for learning and teaching. Colleagues offer a range of demos and hands-on activities, all aimed at non-expert users. The approach is very informal – just turn up at any time, for however long you like, and speak with colleagues about their experiences of using digital technologies.
