Student Digital Champions
Digital Education recruit a group of Student Digital Champions each year 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.
In this past year students have worked with us and their peers to gather feedback on the technologies used in learning and teaching, providing an insight into any future opportunities. Our students have spoken at national conferences for JISC and have also created learning materials and designed teaching sessions for fellow students.
Our student digital champions are based at the 'Ask Us' desk in the library and are on-hand to support you with your digital learning queries. We are immensely proud of the work our digital champions do and can't wait to see what they achieve this year!

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.

<p>about our students<br></p>

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.
