“It’s very easy to avoid learning about new technology, digital teaching methods, social media, etc., especially if you’ve been doing quite well without it for years. And it can be incredibly daunting!”
joinin will make learning about tech easy, appealing, and relevant; the sessions clearly demonstrating how technology could help staff in their role or their personal life.
The University of Oxford IT Innovation Seed Fund [Trial] is supporting a prototype of joinin which is based in the Academic IT Services. The team will run joinin for an audience drawn from across a University unit, in or near to their place of work. The tailored approach of joinin, together with the non-traditional learning environment and informal teaching methods, should help to form communities around this new digital awareness and realise other longer term benefits. joinin is inspired by ‘Computer Club‘, run for the staff of the Imperial War Museums.
