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.

Set up and run a webinar: Learn a 21st Century Employability Skill
Ellen Lessner and Emma Procter-Legg will be speaking at the Jisc RSC Event "Technology, Innovation and Success - A conference for ACL and WBL" on the 28th March 2014 at Senate House, University of London.
Our session "Set up and run a webinar: Learn a 21st Century Employability Skill" will look at the lessons learned from our original project on webinars and employability skills run at Abingdon & Witney College. It is also a chance for us to showcase our (draft) blended learning course on setting up and running a webinar as an employability skill. The development of this freely available short course will form one of the major outputs of our embedding project. The funding for this is from the Jisc FE and Skills Embedding Activity Programme.
