  1. 1. ALT-C 9/9/2015 Engaging learners in active dialogue around their digital expectations and experiences #digitalstudent digitalstudent.jiscinvolve.org
  2. 2. http://digitalstudent.jiscinvolve.org » Phase 1 study reviewed students’ expectations and experiences of the digital environment at university and we spoke to 500 staff and students during our consultation » We conducted a review of practice in schools to identify likely incoming expectations » In phase 2 we focused on FE speaking to 220 learners and 300 staff from colleges across the UK » Phase 3 Skills study, speaking to adult & community learners, work based learners including apprentices and offender learners » Prototyping a digital student data service to support providers & universities to gather their learners experiences of technology 09/09/15 Enhancing your learners’ digital experience
  3. 3. 09/09/15 Enhancing your learners’ digital experience The digital experience matters » Learners' first experiences of university are often online: colleges increasingly relate to students online too » Learners compare their digital experiences and provision » Many course experiences are now hybrid/blended » Learners want to use their own devices and services to access, organise and record their learning » Learners expect college/university to prepare them for employment in digital workplaces and life in a digital society » Learners' sense of wellbeing and belonging are tied up with the quality of their digital access
  4. 4. Learners want a say 09/09/15 Enhancing your learners’ digital experience » Learners in our studies saw the digital experience as an opportunity to contribute and get involved » Digital engagement methods such as social media, padlets, twitter walls, vox pops etc are popular... » … and once established can be used for other issues too » Digital students are different – it is important that the experience of different groups is represented » Learners can get involved in different ways e.g. advocate, researcher, representative, intern, change agent, project lead, buddy, mentor, designer... » This is an issue which can help change relationships between staff and students
  5. 5. Colleges and universities want to do this better 09/09/15 Enhancing your learners’ digital experience » The digital experience is a complex and emerging issue – it's hard to ask the right questions » Information about it is held by different people in different roles and places – it's hard to get a joined up picture » Longitudinal, qualitative and comparative data are essential – but difficult to collect, manage and interpret » Engagement should be part of a change agenda: students get cynical if their opinion is sought but not acted on » Lack of resources to do the research » Is the digital experience really a separate issue or should it be investigated alongside other learner data?
