Earlier today the Oxford Mail visited the Abingdon campus of Abingdon & Witney College to take some photos after a Press Release was sent out about our JISC Advance funded Students4webES project.
Project leader, Ellen Lessner, was on hand to capture a photo of core members of the student group with Kelly Boast, Head of Staff Services, who starred in our first webinar.
About our project
In January 2014, we received the good news that we had been successful in our bid for an extension of our original project via the Jisc FE and Skills Development and Resources Programme – Embedding Activity. We will continue to use this blog to record our activities, outputs and achievements over the next months.
The aims of our Embedding project are:
- to build on the positive outcomes and outputs of our original webinar project
- highlight the key employability skills identified in webinars by the employers who took part in our original project
- produce a well structured and resourced blended learning course to teach students the skills of setting up and running a webinar as a 21st century employability skill
- continue to disseminate our project findings and offer support through Jisc Regional Support Centres to help embed webinar training for students as part of a tutorial or curriculum programme using a blended learning course.
