Building capacity programme

This programme will enhance the application of JISC outputs and outcomes in the Higher Education Sector. The programme will work with senior change agents in HEIs (Pro Vice-Chancellors or equivalent) to create senior management led change in a number of key strategic concerns that are facing that institution.

At the end of the programme JISC will have identified methods for the effective deployment and use of project outputs, providing a body of evidence that provides uptake-assistance to the wider sector from a cohort of beacon institutions, the processes and lessons learned will provide a roadmap for wide-scale take up of emerging JISC outputs and outcomes from projects and services.

Aims

  • Create an environment in institutions in which JISC Projects and Services’ artefacts (e.g. guidance) can be deployed with minimum barriers
  • Learn about models of successful uptake identify institutional processes that will ease deployment of JISC outputs, and share these with Services
  • Demonstrate the value of using senior institutional staff as ‘business change agents’ in the institutions’ adoption of JISC outputs, in this document referred to as ‘Agents’
  • Articulate mechanisms of how benefits from projects can be identified and drawn into institutional needs
  • Learn more about how to work successfully in partnership with and through established networks across the sector to assist in the take-up of outputs, drawing upon a small group of strategically aware staff from institutions
  • Provide feedback to improve the artefacts themselves (to increase their attractiveness to institutions, so that they usable, useful and used)
