We will transform digital learning and teaching, using the latest technological innovations to deliver a world-class education.
We are investing in the Digital Learning Hub and cross-faculty projects in Medicine and Engineering/Natural Sciences, focussed on building new capacity in technology enhanced learning. These teams will support staff and students in using technology to enhance education and provide expertise and support in learning analytics and research. This includes funding new resource-rich learning spaces for staff to explore different teaching techniques.
Our vision is to use digital and online technology to enhance a sense of collaboration and community between students on campus, to better apply interactive teaching techniques, and to expand possibilities for creating an international classroom.
The Digital Learning Hub and the Faculty Ed Tech teams (Engineering, Natural Sciences, Medicine, and the Business School) are working with departments to make the classroom even more interactive and collaborative in future by working alongside our students to integrate the latest technology into their courses.
Technology can also improve personal interactions - interactive learning environments have often been found to encourage more positive approaches to diversity and inclusivity on campuses. Our cohort will become more diverse as we expand our community of learners across the world, primarily by providing a range of compelling online courses.
By creating a learning environment which has at its heart the latest evidence-based approach to teaching, combined with world-class digital teaching innovations, we can deliver a future for the College that is built around the student, and positions our staff as global leaders in learning and teaching in science, medicine, technology and entrepreneurship.
Digital Learning Hub Strategic approach
The three key areas of focus in the Digital Learning Strategy are experience, innovation and extension.
- Experience: enhancing the learning experience of our on-campus students
- Innovation: developing thought-provoking and impactful technology to support interactive teaching and create a stronger sense of community among our students and staff
- Extension: securing our place as a global leader in digital learning through the provision of online courses which are open, accessible, and contribute to solving the big challenges facing our world today and in the future
