Could you be a Digital Ambassador?

Do you want to get the digital edge through better digital and information literacy skills*, and help transform learning on your course?

The Student Ambassadors for Digital Literacy project is looking for plugged-in, enthusiastic undergraduates studying in the Department of Statistics and Social Policy to help develop digital and information literacy skills relevant to their courses, and tell us how we can better embed digital literacies into undergraduate teaching at the LSE.

In return, you will receive training for skills such as writing for blogs, maintaining a social media presence and managing research resources; skills which will be vital in your future careers. Participation in this project will be recognised in your LSE Personal Development Aide Memoir (PDAM), and you will also receive vouchers to spend online.

For more details, please see the Student ambassadors for digital literacy job and person spec_final.

The deadline for applications is 29 November (Friday Week 8). For any further queries, please email Arun Karnad at a.r.karnad@lse.ac.uk.

*Digital and Information literacies are knowing how to find, evaluate, use and manage information using digital technology appropriately. They are part of lifelong learning and an important skill for all students.
