Please see the information below which has come from JISC.  If you’ve never taken part in a webinar before it’s an easy way to learn about what other providers/tutors are doing.  You can listen along, and contribute to the Q&A session if you want to, from your own computer.  Even if you can’t take part tomorrow you may find the links below useful for future reference.  Jisc work with FE and HE institutions to champion the use of digital technologies in UK education and research.  They provide relevant and useful advice, digital content and network and IT services, while we research and develop new technologies and ways of working 


We invite you to join in the discussions around internet safety in our forthcoming webinar Keeping learners safe online, Wednesday 5th November, 11.00 – 12.00. This one hour webinar will feature good practice case studies from several further education and specialist colleges that demonstrate how they have improved the safety of learners online.


You’ll have an opportunity to ask questions and share your experiences in the Q&A panel session that follows the case study presentations. Chaired by Paul McKean, Jisc’s Customer advocate FE and skills, our panel will include the case study presenters and representatives from our advisory services.


The webinar will be of interest to a wide range of staff in UK further education and specialist colleges with responsibility for keeping learners safe online including: safeguarding officers, policy officers, learning and teaching staff, learning technologists, IT directors and managers, learning resource centre managers and curriculum staff.


In preparation for the webinar, we’ve been busy updating links to useful resources in our Internet safety resource hub. The resource hub includes the recently updated e-Safety infoKit which provides practical advice on how to get started with e-safety and a look at the strategic, operational and legal considerations and how to mitigate and act on possible risks. Most importantly the infoKit encourages the embedding of safe practices across all aspects of the organisation and the cultivating of responsible behaviours.


The webinar is one of a number of activities we’re planning around internet safety and security. We welcome your involvement by dropping us a line at to:


– Tell us about any challenges your college is currently facing, examples of how you’ve addressed these and the positive impact this has had on learners so we can showcase best practice examples

– Send us information about any events or other activities your college is planning so we can help promote these from our website.
