Library welcomed ALDinHE conference

Published Monday 16 April 2012

Professionals from across the UK HE sector converged at Leeds for this year's conference.

The Association for Learning Development in Higher Education (ALDinHE) annual conference took place at the University of Leeds on 2-4 April.

Our first time as hosts was very timely, given the event's theme of digital literacy and Skills@Library's recent award win.

The event aimed to facilitate the sharing of ideas and examples of good practice, and show how student learning is changing in our digital age.

Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Student Education, Professor Vivien Jones, welcomed academics, learning developers, librarians and learning technologists from the whole of the UK.

Workshops, many led by Skills Team staff, covered a diverse range of topics, demonstrating how digital learning impacts on the student experience.

Skills@Library's award-winning lecturer resources include the topic Learning in a digital age. We have similar material aimed at students, covering increasingly important study methods such as using mobile apps and social networking sites, and creating video and audio.
