The Digital Learning Project supports the objectives of the University’s Learning and Teaching Strategy and Digital Strategy by improving teaching and learning and enhancing the student experience through the use of digital technologies.
In support of this, the University Projects Board approved an initial exploratory phase of work to run from September 2016 to February 2017, which includes:
- A detailed assessment using a benchmarking tool to understand our current position in relation to digital learning
- Definition and communication of our digital learning vision – what ‘digital’ in learning means for SHU
- Identification of options to achieve the vision i.e. how to improve digital learning at Sheffield Hallam
- Recommendations for improvements to digital learning for the University Projects Board to consider
The project is being led by Professor John Leach, Dr Graham Holden and Dr Alison Purvis, and directed by a Change Team which has senior academic representation from all four faculties.
During the next few months, the Project Delivery Team will be engaging with colleagues and students across the University, as well as external parties, to draw on their knowledge, ideas and experience.
