Supporting innovation in learning, teaching and the student experience

  • Creating user personas
    One way you can really get involved is in helping us create a rich understanding of the typical users of EMA, by that we mean students, academic staff and administrative staff (but there might be other users you know about). These personas will help us in the idea generation stage where we imagine solutions to […]

  • MOOCs and more: teaching, learning and responding to student demand.
    I was recently asked to speak at an event on MOOCs and technology-enhanced learning. I was part of a panel discussing what we can learn from MOOCs to apply to technology-enhanced learning, and how to support technology-enhanced learning more generally. This is something I could happily discuss for hours, so it was something of a ...

  • How are you looking after your digital students?
    Now that we’ve completed our consultation with HE stakeholders, it’s time to ask what you are doing to enhance the student digital experience.

  • Establishing priorities for action
    If there’s one thing that is clear from our EMA landscape review it is that we are facing an awful lot of challenges. It is reassuring to have some clarity about what the issues are and to find that the same issues crop up right across the sector but we need more than that if […]

  • The power of the student voice
    I was very fortunate to attend the recent QAA Quality Matters Conference in Birmingham. This is an annual conference which QAA run for student representatives and supports their engagement with the quality enhancement agenda and student engagement. Anthony McClaran in his introduction in the conference programme says, ‘It is vital that students have the right ...

  • Project areas emerging from the digital capability consultation
    The initial consultation phase of the digital capability challenge ran from June to September 2014, and included individual interviews with codesign partners and other stakeholders, from which solutions ideas were distilled and uploaded to an open voting platform. Over 120 users posted over 450 votes and 60+ comments in a two-week period. The top 9 ...

  • Learning and Teaching Experts Meeting workshop – 15/10
    Yesterday I gave a short presentation about the project to a group of delegates at a Learning and Teaching Experts meeting that took place at Maple House in Birmingham (great venue with lots of tea/coffee and cake around all day). It was a really lively session and seemed to spark a lot of interest in those that attended it. ...
