Digital Education Office
Since November 2020, we’ve been lucky enough to have worked with a team of Student Digital Champions from across all six faculties in the Uni. They’ve been out and about, talking to students and course reps to tell us what’s important to students in their digital learning experiences.
This summer, we have had a new team with us, who are helping us with key work we’re now doing to prepare for the new academic year ahead. They’ve been looking at assessment guidance, hybrid learning, support for students using MS Teams for learning, improving our digital skills courses Digitally Ready and Digitally Ready: Reflect and Reboot (which you can find from our Student Support page), and more. We also have a dedicated team of Student Digital Accessibility Champions, as accessibility and inclusion is going to be a real focus for all our work over the next year.
This summer, we’ve been working with:
Annie Walsh (UG) and Hollie Smith (UG)
Deepthi Nanduri (UG) and Gloria Bosi (UG)
Jessica Mounty (UG) and Emma Ford (UG)
Leah Parker (UG) and Helena Thornton (UG)
Hamzah Teladia (PGT) and Estefania (Nia) Deniz Fuentes (UG)
Social Sciences and Law
Olivia Muggleton (UG) and Alex Maskell (PGT)
Our Student Digital Accessibility Champions are:
Freya Selman – Social Sciences and Law UG
Elizabeth Hodge – Life Sciences UG
Georgie Pitts – Social Sciences and Law UG
Isabella Coombs – Engineering UG
Reflecting on the Student Digital Champions in 2021
At the end of our first group of students, we made with them a short video reflecting on our experiences, which you can watch here.
