Voice 1: CHRIS FOLLOWS [Project Manager]
Hello, My name is Chris Follows. I am the DIAL project manager here at the University of the Arts London, In this video we are just going to give a quick overview of the progress of the DIAL project.
Voice 2: SHAN WAREING [Project Director]
I am Shan Wareing, and I am the senior in charge of the DIAL project. When we first started thinking about the DIAL project everybody wanted it, so everyone wanted a stake in it, the library IT, Communications and Learning &Teaching, which is me. I think everything we do depends on getting this right. I think digital is the future for creativity. If you are curious about the world and curious about creativity you have to be looking at what happens digitally.
Voice 3: LINDSAY JORDAN [Group coordinator]
We have had around 600 Blogposts and 55 videos posted up over the last few months by the teachers on our post graduate certificate programmes, and I'm hoping that by now the majority of participants have realised that the sky won't fall on their heads if they open up their reflections to the whole world. I do get a genuine sense that everyone who has participated on the programme this far has gained a better understanding of the benefits and challenges reflecting on line and feels more familiar with the tools and environment that people use in Online Reflective Practice. Now the next step for this group are to look at what informs the decisions people make as they move towards more open forms of Online Reflective Practice and how others can be helped towards making that journey as well.
Voice 4: LAURA NORTH [Group Coordinator]
Hello my name is Laura North I'm helping set up an online-community for presentation skills for the DIAL project. To start with we are focusing on Video presentation skills. As part of this we are running some workshops for the MA Fashion Entrepreneurship course at LCF
Voice 5: Student talking:
Compared to like last class and this class we're a bit more comfortable with the camera, like today I didn't mind being filmed it was fine.
