Delivering a robust and flexible digital environment is complex and requires skilled participation from multiple stakeholders including students, academic staff, professional services and estates teams – a whole institution approach.
Some suggestions for how you might take this work forward include:
- Consult stakeholders including students – find out what works well and what frustrates them when using institutional systems and involve them in designing and testing solutions
- Strengthen affinity with students by promoting the digital resources and services you offer to your students
- Create flexible places for learning and collaborative learning
- Adopt a user-centred approach that focuses on supporting people rather than systems
