Jisc Digifest 2018

by Jin Tan

I attended the Jisc Digital Festival (Digifest) 2018 in Birmingham between 6-7th March. It was the first time I had attended the event. Although I needed to head to Birmingham in the very early morning and come back in the late evening, I was excited and appreciated the opportunity.

The events focused on four themes and I was interested in three areas particularly: education (digital) strategy, enhancing learning experience, and VR/AR/AI use cases. Here, I’ll share the ones that excited me the most. The event updates and the programme details are on the Jisc website and under the  Twitter hashtag #digifest18.

Education (digital) strategy

The opening keynote from Shakira Martin (National Union of Students) stated the importance of supporting inclusion and diversity in any education strategy. This reminded me of two useful MOOCs I have studied recently – Digital Accessibility: Enabling Participation in the Information Society and Inclusive Learning and Teaching Environments. I would highly recommend the courses to those of you that are interested.
