Student Digital Champions

Digital Education have recruited a group of Student Digital Champions and their role is to support and enhance digital learning across the institution.

This allows us to work with students on a range of digital projects ensuring that the student voice is considered before any decisions are made, therefore they are key in the shaping of the digital experience at Plymouth.

This year we have employed 17 students from across the University who have been working with us and their peers to gather feedback on the technologies used in learning and teaching, providing an insight into any future opportunities.

Meet our champions

Our champions represent a diverse range of disciplines in the University and provide us with an excellent insight into the student voice.

It is widely recognised that students make a valuable contribution to the development of their peers and our staff digital literacy skills by sharing their experiences and running sessions related to the use of digital technologies for learning.

Also, through formal and anecdotal student feedback collected through a range of interactions, we know that students have lots of ideas as to how technology could be used effectively for learning and teaching. In more recent years the sector has been exploring ways in which to develop the digital skills of their students and staff.

Key areas of focus

  • Assisting to identify potential digital development needs of both students and staff.
  • Represent the wider student body on the Digital Learning Forum.
  • Proposals for technology use and purchases related to learning and teaching.
  • Support further development of the University of Plymouth mobile app.
  • Provide feedback on current learning technologies being used.
  • Support the University with Digital Education initiatives.
