This series of two online workshops on 7 and 21 June will explore ways in which technology-enhanced learning can support the development of learners’ digital identity and wellbeing.
Supporting learners’ digital identity and wellbeing is a key driver for organisations who want to prepare their learners for the digital workplace. In the first online workshop, participants will explore the issues learners face when developing digital identities. Between the workshops, participants will be asked to complete a short survey and identify some key challenges that they face. In the second workshop, they will reflect on current organisational practices, and address these challenges by sharing their approaches and solutions.
The workshops will help build confidence in participants and provide them with a range of activities to use with learners so they can make informed and responsible choices when using digital technologies that help them thrive in a digital world.
Participants will then be able to take away the associated resources and complete, reflect on and follow up the activities in their own time.
Participants will also be able to use the associated resources to run similar workshops in their own organisational settings.
