cfp on digital inclusion and developing digital literacies

The CILIP Information Literacy Group are collaborating with the Tinder Foundation on two events focused on digital inclusion and developing digital literacies. They will run on 4 February 2016 in London, UK, and on 11 February 2016 in Leeds, UK. "The events will bring together public library colleagues with IL practitioners in HE [Higher Education] and FE [Further Education] to share experience and knowledge around teaching digital literacies. ILG are inviting expressions of interest from individuals/teams based in HE and FE to share best practice, resources and initiatives which support the digital inclusion / digital literacy agenda. The events will be TeachMeet style and so contributions should take the form of short presentations (10-15 minutes). We would welcome people bringing along examples of resources and teaching sessions they have developed in this field."

There doesn't seem to be a deadline given, but people will be notified of whether they are successful by 11 January, so I imagine the deadline is before Christmas (but, as you see, I was too lazy to email and find out). Questions go to
