To strengthen its offer to the further education sector, Jisc has appointed former chief executive and principal of Richmond upon Thames College, Robin Ghurbhurun, to join its executive leadership team.
A sticky campus is a digitally-enabled space where students want to spend time, even when they don’t have a formal teaching session to go to. It’s a learning environment designed to give students everything they need for collaborative and solitary study, and to promote active learning. It supports inclusivity and enables rich learning experiences.
Over the past few years, awareness of mental health issues has grown and the wellbeing of students and staff is never far from the media. There seems to be general agreement that better support is required, which means equipping more people at colleges and universities with skills to deal with those in distress.
Launching tomorrow, Tuesday 3 September, Jisc’s 2019 digital experience insights student survey report will show how learners at UK colleges and universities experience technology. Shakira Martin reflects on the value of the survey.
