The April eLC event, PVC-LT Scholarship projects: Show & Tell + Workshop on Digital Scholarship - how to publish with impact, will take place on Tuesday 30th April 2013 in the Jennie Lee Building Main Ambient Lab Ground Floor, from 10:00 to 12:45. Two projects which received PVC-LT funding for Scholarship of/for Teaching (2011-12) will report on findings they believe will be of interest to eLC members as well as consider their experiences of running Scholarship projects. This is followed by a workshop for any OU staff interested in disseminating their scholarship work using available digital methods, to achieve that all-important 'impact'.
The recording of the event will be made available on Stadium.
As always, we aim to stick to time, so please feel free to drop in and out according to your availability and interest.

Title: Student experiences and perceptions of digital literacy skills development: engaging learners by design?
Abstract: The EADDLS project explores factors affecting learners’ engagement in digital literacy skills development. We are particularly interested in:
- the extent to which learners require skills activities to be set in a subject-specific context, as opposed to a more generic approach design
- implications for accommodating student needs.
We discuss how we set up a longitudinal data collection method across 3 modules, and our findings to date, including the impact of demographic factors on perceptions.
10:45 – Presenters: Roshan Boojihawon and Rob Parsons (OU Business School)
Title: Reverse engineering
Abstract: This is about reconstituting B201 to be available in prisons. It's going the other way in a sense - starting with an aggressively online and collaborative course and reworking it to be available in an offline version. The relevance to e-learning is that it puts the pedagogy, which was developed for an e-learning platform, under a microscope and looks at what is transferable between different methods of delivery.
11:30 – Coffee
11:45 – Presenter: Jan Parker (Senior Research Fellow, IET)
Title: How to publish scholarly work – with impact – in the era of digital scholarship
Abstract: This is a very fast moving field, with OpenScience databases and crowdsourcing changing the whole idea of what it is to have 'impactful' publishing. And yet, peer-review journals are holding their end up, albeit with online and open presence.
Jan Parker, on the Editorial Board of numerous journals, such as the new International Journal of Learning Inquiry - the ISSOTL journal - and heavily involved in publishing SoTL with Carnegie Academy SoTL US Editor and with Teaching in HE, will input views from the 'official' and traditional wing of publishing as well as the emerging world of digital scholarship.
We will talk about how to publish in this era of digital publishing, 'impactfully' all kinds of scholarly work.
Everyone is asked to bring along dissemination ideas of where *they* turn to and where they would like to publish - project pages, blogs and other - as well as 'regular', peer reviewed journals.
We will discuss how to layer publication of projects in different markets and to different audiences.
