The DIAL project supports the development of staff and student led communities of practice (CoPs). The DIAL CoPs are made up of self-identifying individuals and groups who articulate their digital literacies goals and aspirations, assess their existing skills and confidence levels, and develop processes and resources to support their development and improve their collective digital literacies. Within these communities of practice, new interest groups are formed where individual and collective aims and anxieties are identified, along with skills and experience. Over the project lifetime, processes, resources (OERs) and prototypes are developed so the communities can be self sustaining and increasingly autonomous in their development.
