Why POI?

Student & Staff engagement - The DIAL project found many staff and students were lacking vital basic web building knowledge and skills, students and staff have told us they would appreciative some advice and support in this area. There was a general feeling that having a basic understanding of web environments, processes and developments should be viewed as a fundamental requirement of any professional, training professional and practitioner. Read more about DIAL student engagement, including Enterprise Week sessions, surveys, workshops and student DIAL research.

What we’d like to archive:

Take: You get some training and support in web development
Give: Together we create a small community of practice where you share what you know with others, online or face-to-face 

Wider Project goals

  • Form UAL partnerships to help deliver training and provide sustainability.
  • Develop a Learning / Web Literacy Standard for UAL art students.
  • Explore sustainable models for mass course delivery and integration across UAL.
  • Experiment with virtual and physical learning and teaching communities of practice including developing an ‘arts online professional practice’ massive open online course MOOC.    


How its being developed?

How it is being developed (agile, not short courses or polished its a pilot/experiment)

The programme will agile and will continually be developed through participant feedback and participation, we would like to create/support a self-sustaining community of interest and support network rather than a short course programme. The POI programme will include formal face-to-face training (where possible) and make best use of informal meetings and group sessions as well as online training and support networks.
