Do you want to start a conversation with your students about their digital skills for work and study? Are you looking for a way to enable staff to reflect on their digital skills and identify gaps in their knowledge?

We are delighted to announce a new staff workshop introducing the Discovery Tool.  The tool consists of reflective question sets which explore your digital practices and confidence levels.  The main question set looks at overall digital capabilities but there are also additional question sets for staff covering effective teaching and accessibility and inclusion, all from a digital perspective.   The tool can also be used by students and there is a general question set for all students and one aimed at new students.

New for January 2024 there is now a question set on Digital Skills in AI for staff and one for students is due in March.

We currently have online workshops scheduled to take place at 15 February and 6 March 2024.

About the workshop

During the workshop you will have the opportunity to try out the tool for yourself and receive a personalised report with suggestions for how to develop your skills and links to free resources.
You will explore how you can use the tool with colleagues, for example as part of the appraisal process or an away day, or with students to encourage them to reflect on their digital practices and experience.
Results are confidential and you can choose who to share your report with.  However we are able to generate anonymised analytics to identify overall trends across departments (for staff) and subjects (for students).
Book a place on Eventbrite or visit the Discover your digital page to find out more about the tool and how to use it.  If you can’t attend one of these sessions but would like us to let you know about future dates or you would like to organise a workshop from a group of staff or students, please contact us via our expression of interest form.
