As universities and colleges are investing large sums of money into their digital environment, how do we know that this investment is resulting in staff and students using the technology effectively? Understanding how students and staff use technology is essential to inform colleges and universities with the development of their digital environment. Since 2016, Jisc has been running the digital experience insights surveys to support organisations to gather staff and students’ expectations and experiences of technology.
The main purpose of the insights survey is to allow organisations to collect valid, representative and actionable data from their students, teaching staff and professional services staff and to use the data to begin conversations with students and staff about their digital experience. However, there are other important benefits. The data collected can be used to gain efficiencies, for example to avoid investment in costly technology that students and staff are not using.
This webinar reports on the research findings from the recently 2019 teaching staff surveys. 61 UK universities and colleges 6,534 teaching staff participated this year. The session will highlight the issues teaching staff are experiencing with their use of technology for example, support for professional development, development of their digital skills, concerns over responsibilities for online safety and accessible practice. Participants in the webinar will have the opportunity to discuss whether these results align with what they are experiencing in their own organisation and share ideas on how we can work together to address these challenges.
