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’ 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’ 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 (from the former TEL-Hub) 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. Look out for news on additional forms of support coming shortly and remember, your local, College-based digital support staff will remain in place.
We are really pleased to announce that from Monday 9th October, an enhanced support service for all staff and students to help them make the most of the Canvas has been introduced.
