Digital Student Project 26/03/2014 Jisc Digital Student 3 » Digital Student phase  1  study  conducted  a  review  into  students’   expectations and experiences of the digital environment at university » The study reviewed existing research and survey evidence from institutions, as well as conducting original interviews and focus groups » Jisc and its co-design partners (UCISA, SCONUL, RLUK and RUGIT) are now supporting a consultation phase across the higher education sector which will inform the final guidance to institutions and further actions by Jisc and its partners » A parallel study in FE and Skills with similar consultation events will shortly get underway » Review of current practice in secondary schools is also underway » Find out more at #digitalstudent
  • 4. Digital Student - Phase 1 12/03/2014 Jisc Digital Student 4 » An initial study reviewed existing evidence about students' expectations and experiences of study in a digital environment. This includes both: › digital environment generally e.g. wifi, IT support, access to devices and printers › the study environment in its digital aspects e.g. how digital resources and media are used; what software students access, how they use their own devices and services to support learning › The study also looked at how universities collect, manage and analyse such information locally, and how they engage students in a productive dialogue about their digital experience.
  • 5. Phase 1 - Literature review 26/03/2014 Jisc Digital Student 5 › Access › BYOD › VLE › Computers – space › Support › Practice
  • 6. Phase 2 - Schools 26/03/2014 Jisc Digital Student 6 »Didactic not independent › Nat curriculum ? Digital Literacy › VLE (wide variation) – information › Grassroots practice from staff › Practice varies
