Digifest 2017 day TWO

The second day of Digifest was attended by Marianna and myself. Here are some of my scheduled and favourite sessions (including DigiLab):

Part Deux: why educators can’t live without social media

Watch online

Great morning session about the social media and its impact in HE. Eric Stoller addressed several areas: critical thinking, building community and even career development. The interesting part for me was about using Snapchat and Instagram daily stories within HE in USA.

Perspectives on implementing a vision for developing staff digital capability

Watch online

A truly inspiring speech from Deborah Millar, director for digital learning and IT services, Salford City College and Steve Rowett, UCL about different approaches to staff engagement. Apart from providing drop-in sessions for staff, both speakers mentioned “champions”. Technology capable individuals across academic schools that inform their colleagues in different areas. UCL has a very similar structure to CU. They use Lynda.com for online training which is interesting. Also, take a look at the JISC strategy for building digital capability.
