  • Issues with finding authentic information via Google, effective use of search engines not taught?

  • Role of technology in group work – employer criticism of HE that group working skills not taught, are academic staff up to speed with use of technology to enable group work e.g. wikis?

  • Digital divide is an issue but can’t go backwards! Has to be a move to find solutions to problems of inclusivity. Gap some academic staff need to bridge becoming larger.

Student Panel discussion

  • Digital divide

    • access to ICT a socio-economic issue not just about digital literacy skills

    • would timetabled support help?

      • peer/mentor support would be better as would reward senior students and enable less able students to develop necessary skills.

    • provision of lap-tops for students would help reduce divide
