The insights and ideas of our colleagues will be central to designing and delivering the right infrastructure and resources for successful blended and flexible learning. Our colleagues are experienced, ingenious and full of great ideas that we want to draw on to make our next steps a success and create a blended model that really works for staff and students. 


We would love academic and PS colleagues to join our network groups to work on specific initiatives, which will include:

  • assessment
  • accessibility
  • training and skills
  • technology (software and hardware)
  • space on campus
  • innovation

What to expect

We’re asking colleagues to commit a maximum of 8 hours between October 2021 and February 2022. This is made up of three facilitated workshops, as well as time spent outside of meetings. We will also be running student workshops to understand their concerns and listen to their ideas and the final workshop will bring staff and students together. Student partners will be working alongside staff to ensure that our students’ views are fully and equally considered.

We can confirm that the workshops for each network group will take place during the following periods:

  • Workshop 1: 18 October – 12 November 2021(60 minutes)
  • Workshop 2: 15 November – 10 December 2021 (90 minutes)
  • Final workshop with staff and students: 7 February – 25 February 2022 (90 minutes)

Let us know what you need from our future Digital Learning Environment

In addition to the network groups, we’ll be holding targeted workshops to explore how our University’s digital infrastructure can best support teaching and learning for our colleagues and students. These will focus on the software, platform and tools needed for teaching, learning and assessments.

You don’t need technical expertise to join – just an interest in any aspect of teaching and learning from curriculum design to assessment. The sessions will consider how our future digital learning environment can further support you in in delivering outstanding teaching and learning and an excellent student experience.

Workshops for staff and students will be held in January and February 2022 and we will publish further information on StaffNet.
