DIAL ambassadors: DIAL recently received funding from the HEA, changing the Learning Landscape <workshop> project funding. DIAL will commission ‘digital DIALogue’ student (renamed as DIAL ambassadors) for UAL over a period of two months (October & November 2013, reporting in December via project manager). The DIAL ambassadors will work closely with the UAL DAIL team to gain skills and knowledge to support and encourage other students to explore the wealth of online DIAL project resources and groups created over the time of the project. With the one-to-one support and guidance of the DIAL project manager, the DIAL ambassadors would disseminate the DIAL resources across the six colleges of the university and the sector with an aim of developing student communities of practice (CoPs) online and on location to grow and enhance current groups and create new student led CoPs and interest.
