How can I improve my skills in digital learning?

Next month, Monday January 15 – Friday January 19 2018 sees the launch of the annual BYOD4L CPD activities aimed at enhancing your own skills in using digital media and devices to support your own learning and that of your students.

This is a great bitesize CPD opportunity, supporting more flexible professional learning in the modern workplace – a  clear message of SALT’s 2017 conference Keynote speaker Jane Hart.

In its 6th year of running, this online “course” will cover the 5Cs framework of

  • Connecting
  • Communicating
  • Curation
  • Collaboration and
  • Creating

(Explained on with some extra Cs!  Check out their website for those extra Cs.

You don’t have to participate each day, but you can gain recognition of your efforts though Open Digital badges.

For more details about BYOD4L, see its webpage:

You will need to have a Twitter account to participate in this CPD.

Follow @BYOD4L to keep up to date regarding the course and follow the hashtag #BYOD4L.

If you don’t already have  a Twitter account, perhaps make it a New Year’s Resolution to register and have a go at using Twitter for your professional development.  I was initially suspicious and a bit scared before I started my Twitter account, and now find it invaluable to keep up to date in my subject and also for professional development.


  1. Hi – I’d be interested in this CPD activity, but only able to attend one day next week. Would it be possible to complete the rest of the course online in my own time?

  2. Hi Non. You can choose what particular aspect you are able to engage with, but I’ve emailed you and copied in one of the organising group, SALT’s own Deb Baff to clarify what is possible.
