Tomorrow sees the first Project Board, where members of the team will meet up – a modest agenda and some important ground work to be done, agreeing terms of reference, approving the work plan, thinking about dissemination and setting some initial tasks for the Delivery Group. Eager to get started….
Here we will track our progress and document our activities. Several members of the team will record their thoughts via the blog.
So what is Get Ahead all about?
This project comprises several elements:
- Research to establish student attitudes to and take up of technology, the skills required to use it effectively and the relevance of these skills to their employability
- What messages are effective in persuading students of the relevance of the full range of digital literacy skills for employability
- Testing the above with a pilot programme aimed at second year undergraduates to take place in Spring 2013
- Integrating the delivery of such skills through multidisciplinary teams
