Webinars are open to all and are free to attend. ocTEL participants will automatically receive joining instructions, so there is no need to register again. We will make the recordings of the sessions available via the ocTEL website. If you haven't yet registered for the course then you can still do so via the ocTEL registration form.

This week Helen Beetham, an expert on learners' experiences of TEL and on digital literacy, will help us to focus on the learner perspective. During the webinar you will find out how much you really know about your digital learners and explore some myths that can get in the way of understanding learners' needs. You will consider what aspects of learners' digital capability are most relevant to their educational success and look in more detail at what we mean by digital literacy.
