About our project

In January 2014, we received the good news that we had been successful in our bid for an extension of our original project via the Jisc FE and Skills Development and Resources Programme – Embedding Activity. We will continue to use this blog to record our activities, outputs and achievements over the next months.

The aims of our Embedding project are:

- to build on the positive outcomes and outputs of our original webinar project
- highlight the key employability skills identified in webinars by the employers who took part in our original project
- produce a well structured and resourced blended learning course to teach students the skills of setting up and running a webinar as a 21st century employability skill
- continue to disseminate our project findings and offer support through Jisc Regional Support Centres to help embed webinar training for students as part of a tutorial or curriculum programme using a blended learning course.

Student centred guide to running a webinar

Having completed our first main output of the Students4webES project - the 8 recorded webinars with employers about employability skills - it is time to move onto working on the other key outputs.

With the conference date set and the event management team on board we have moved onto our final output - the student centred guide to running webinars.

The core group of students involved in the project decided that the guide would appeal to students if it was in the form of a poster. After a long design meeting, which involved deciding on the content and format of the poster, we celebrated by eating lots of pizza at Pizza Express.

Last week we held two photo shoots to capture some images to go on the poster. Luckily Ben, an A level media studies student in the core group, brought his camera along to the second session and we managed to take some nice photos.

Below are a few of the photos taken during the photo shoot...

... but you will have to wait until the April 22nd, the date of the conference, to find out which ones made it into the poster!
