Digital Award for Information Literacy 2018 - Winner Announced!

The 2018 winner is:

LEAP Online  (Mary Barden, Dawn Grundy, Graeme Prescott & Emily McIntosh, University of Bolton).

The judges were Katharine Reedy (Learning & Teaching Development Manager, Open University) and Josie Fraser (Social and Educational Technologist).

LEAP Online is an interactive digital resource suite for promoting student learning development and information literacy at the University of Bolton.

The judges were impressed; Katharine Reedy explained: “this is well thought-through and the front end is visually appealing. It has a strong underpinning framework that enables students to develop their skills in a scaffolded way, with clear links to the curriculum and to employability. There is evidence of positive student engagement with the resource through badges gained and survey feedback.”

Congratulations to the Bolton team!
