Subject: Digital Literacy in the Disciplines - Funding for small projects available (Deadline 1st May)

Digital Literacy in the Disciplines is a series of mini-projects that aim to develop the use of digital literacies the disciplines. Institutions are invited to bid for one of eight projects (two projects per HEA cluster of disciplines) attracting £5000 of funding per project.

This series of mini-projects is a component of the HEA's Educational Learning Technologies (ELT) work to develop Digital Literacies through further work in the disciplines. This element is aligned to the theme of 'Students as Partners'.

In this call we are seeking to fund a series of small projects to establish a consistent approach across a range of disciplines to enable staff to provide students with the opportunity to develop their digital literacies while creating re-usable interactive resources. It complements the JISC Digital Literacies programme to promote coherent, inclusive and holistic institutional strategies and organisational approaches for developing digital literacies for all staff and students in UK further and higher education.

The project is being delivered by the HEA's Educational Learning Technologies (ELT) work to develop Digital Literacies in the disciplines. Our intention is to extend awareness and practice through a discipline-based approach to developing digital literacy.
