Digital Education Network launch

Wednesday 29 November, 2.30pm – 4.00pm, HELIX

Digital education is increasingly fundamental to how we teach and learn, and to the ways we develop research practice. So, it’s vitally important that the voices of academic and professional colleagues are represented and that there is a space to share practice as we continue to invest in and improve the digital education experience for our students.  

The Digital Education Network (DEN) launches this month as a new institution-wide forum open to all.  

This inclusive environment will enable us to learn from each other while exploring opportunities for innovation and sharing best practice in digital education. By being involved in the Network, you can hear about and influence new developments first-hand.

The first in-person DEN meeting will take place on Wednesday 29 November, 2:30pm - 4:00pm in HELIX and we'd love to see you there. Register your interest to receive an invitation to the event.  

The Network will meet every month and will be supported by a dedicated Microsoft Team where staff can share news, events, and examples of good practice, as well as having the opportunity to collaborate will fellow members in the ‘Ask the Network’ channel. Join the new DEN Team to stay up to date with developments. 

One of the main aims of the network is to explore cutting-edge pedagogical techniques and learning design for digital education and to ensure that technology and digital innovations are led by pedagogy.  It will also facilitate discussions that will help us shape our technological ecosystem to enable effective digital pedagogies. 

As a member of this network, you’ll be part of an open environment that encourages discussion, debate, and exploration, allowing colleagues to learn from approaches that work well, but equally from when things don’t go to plan.   

We are keen to involve colleagues from across the institution in discussions around topics such as digital capabilities, wellbeing, assessment and AI, and members are encouraged to suggest areas for discussion that are important to them. 

Active participation with our academic and professional services colleagues is vital. By closely partnering with other areas of the University, we can adopt a more user-focused service delivery across the institution. To do this, we’re connecting with our colleagues through the Digital Education Network, which will serve as a platform for fostering effective communication and enhanced collaboration.
