Birmingham Digital Education facilitates the sharing of good practice in the use of digital tools across the University and offers training and support to embed their use to enhance the student experience.
Staff and students engaged in a Big Conversation over the last academic year. One of the major themes in the discussion was the need to develop a new focus on ‘Birmingham Digital Education’ for staff, students and curriculum. Issues raised by staff and students led to important questions about the digital skills and critical digital literacy that students will need for their futures, and the support staff will need to ensure that in the digital space, no one is ‘left behind’.
In order to create, develop and deliver a distinctive ‘Birmingham Digital Education’ service, HEFi will be offering new forms of support for staff to help everyone to feel confident in embedding digital tools and strategies into their teaching. HEFi colleagues will work collaboratively with staff across the University to help with the development of new digital skills and ensure staff are able to make informed choices about the best use of digital tools to enhance student learning – on and off campus. See below for additional forms of support and remember, your local College-based digital support staff will remain in place.
