About the Event
The event will provide a forum for intensive discussions around cultural challenges of digital transformation within the HE sector, using the experiences of Teesside University as a lens. This focus recognises the inherent issues associated with maintaining momentum in the enhancement of digital capabilities across complex educational institutions.
Teesside University has embarked upon one of the largest digital transformation projects in the UK HE sector, with an emphasis on 1-1 device deployment for staff and students. Over an 18-month period, the University has developed and embedded a mandatory Digital Development Programme for all teaching staff which has generated a 96% satisfaction rating from participants and enabled the University to accrue the largest concentration of Microsoft Innovative Educator Experts in the UK. Significant benefits have already been realised from this project, including measurable impact on student learning, enhanced staff digital capabilities and a revised approach to collaborative working between IT and learning and teaching functions within the University.
