Developing Digital Literacies for a Digital World: presentations

There are three presentations from the ALISS (Association of Librarians and Information Professionals in the Social Sciences) AGM held earlier this month. The theme was: Developing Digital Literacies for a Digital World and teh presentations are:
- Reflecting on Digital Scholarship competencies: Charles Inskip. This presents findings from the RILADS project, which asked heads of library services of UK universities how competent they thought staff were in various literacies (information literacy, media literacy, digital literacy etc.) though with an emphasis on "digital capabilities".
- Start with the Staff: Sally Patalong. This is a report on two staff development projects aimed at improving digital skills.
- Information literacy for researchers at SOAS: Beth Clark and Victoria Bird. They present preparing, delivering and promoting digital literacy training for Graduate Teaching Assistants. The actual slides do not have much information on them - if you scroll down the page, though, you will see some extra notes.
