Helen Beetham on digital literacy and the role of the university

By Clive Young, on 2 December 2011

Helen Beetham, well-known through her work for JISC, HEFCE and her model for learning activity design, is a leading light in the field of e-learning policy and practice. In this lecture, she explores how digital technologies are changing the needs and expectations of students, how universities can respond, and what opportunities the new digital landscape presents for universities to reposition themselves as institutions of public knowledge. A presentation at the University of Greenwich earlier this year.

    I watched this in the week after Helen presented. I wish I could have been there – especially in the way she dealt with some of the questions. 🙂
