Learning Café CEC11
Students’ Expectations of Their Digital Environment - and What This Means for Your Organisation
Date Thursday, Dec 6 Time – Room Lincke
Universities are increasingly working in partnership with own students, in order to develop their digital environment. As a result, students experience a digitally enabled learning experience which better meets their needs and offers them the digital skills they require for the workplace. But do we really know how students are using technology and how are their expectations changing? This interactive Learning Café will provide you with an overview of the innovative approaches universities are using to gather their students’ views on digital - and how they are they are using the data collected in the 2018 Jisc Tracker surveys to inform the development of their digitally enhanced learning and teaching provision. Hear about their practices, based on over 58,000 student responses worldwide, and explore what these mean in your own context.
