About Clued Up!

Clued Up! is a collaborative project between the Centre for Enhancement of Learning & Teaching (CELT) and Information Systems & Services (ISS) at London Metropolitan University (see The Team below).

The aim of this site is to provide students of the university and the wider Higher Education community with an online resource to help develop their ability to use digital technologies for study and learning and to develop the digital graduate attributes that they need. It came about as a response to the scarcity and fragmented nature of reliable advice for students on how to use technology effectively in their learning. Resources and advice focus on two key areas:

Digital Identity - what students need to know about creating and managing their online profile, staying safe online, understanding what others can see about them online and developing a more professional online identity as they move towards graduation.

Digital learning - how to take advantage of digital tools and technologies to become a more effective learner. These resources encourage students to look at their own digital practices and develop lifelong learning skills by understanding and engaging with new technologies.

This resource will evolve as we feed in the experience and know how of staff and students from a range of subject areas and departments across the university. A group of Digital Ambassadors is being assembled in order to help us evaluate and co-create further resources and case studies. This will, in turn, lead to focus groups within subject areas consisting of staff / student discussions about digital literacies in the disciplines. The overarching aim is to stimulate dialogue between the key stakeholders around changing digital practices in subject areas with a view to, where possible, defining those digital practices, developing resources to help both students and staff develop and eventually embedding the key digital practices explicitly into the curriculum.

The Team

Jim Pettiward   Jim Pettiward
Blended Learning Facilitator for CELT and EAP Lecturer

Blended Learning Facilitator in the E-learning unit at London Metropolitan University. My focus is on helping lecturers and other academic staff in the university understand the potential of new technologies for learning and teaching and showing how these can be integrated into their practice.

I'm particularly interested in digital literacies and how to bring students and staff together to explore the tools and technologies which can enhance learning and teaching processes.

Chris O'Reilly   Chris O’Reilly
University Teaching Fellow
Educational Technologist within ISS

My role involves the design, creation and development of multimedia interactive learning materials that support blended, distance and campus-based programmes of study.

The materials are either embedded into WebLearn or used as a stand-alone package or for individual websites, depending on the outcome and strategic requirements. I also design and facilitate training and workshop sessions for both staff and students. These sessions generally contain a variety of new technologies and social media software.
