Implementing the UKPSF in the Digital University

Today I attended a JISC webinar on this subject in which we looked at the website JISC & Professional Associations Guide to Implementing the UKPSF in the Digital University.

This was of particular interest to me as we have to address the digital literacies of our staff (academic, professional and support) as part of our Newman in the Digital Age project (part of Changing the Learning Landscape).  This DL lens on the UKPSF helps make it relevant.

David Baume said (in the webinar) that five years ago PG Certs were all important but now it’s CPD.  He also noted that the gap between e-learning technologists and academics has almost disappeared in some areas.  I agree.  The movement has been in both directions. Some academics have become more digitally literate and many learning technologists have moved into SOTL so becoming academics themselves.

Helen Beetham said she is interested in seeing how UKPSF can be seen through discipline lenses.

The website is a wiki and although not an open wiki (at the moment) there is a submission form to enable people to upload case studies or recourses (that should be mapped to the ukpsf).

A useful resource.
