Launching the Digital Development Programme

January 24th, 2022

In the context of an ever-increasing digital world, we are delighted to announce a new programme of work focusing on ‘Digital Development’.

Since the global pandemic, the way that we work and interact with others around us has changed dramatically. There has been an increased emphasis on our digital skills and the ability to collaborate across local and global boundaries. However, are we all operating as effectively as we can be in the new digital world and are we prepared for what the future workplace could hold?

For this exciting new initiative, we are seeking volunteers from all Faculties and Professional Services who want to be part of a dynamic programme that is looking to develop the digital culture of the university and our underlying digital capabilities.

What will the Digital Development programme look like?

The new Digital Development programme of work will be focused on three core objectives:

  • Learning more about digital and digital methods of working
  • Learning how to use digital methods to equip ourselves with the right tools
  • Helping to shift the culture of the university and our engagement practices with the aid of digital tools, techniques and mindsets.

Please note that the programme initially will be for staff based in the UK.

How can you get involved?

To kick-start this initiative, we are establishing a Digital Development Consultation Group. Initially, this group will help shape the programme direction and latterly, will act as an instigator and sounding board for digital initiatives and developments.  

Participating in the consultation group will present an exciting opportunity to help to shape the future digital culture of the university, to learn from other areas and to actively input by contributing to digital experiments.

We’re looking for volunteers who have an interest in digital developments and who are able to commit to meet on a quarterly basis, starting from late February/early March. We want to ensure we have representation from across the university, all Faculties and Professional Services across the full range of job families and levels.

There are no pre-requisites for volunteering for this group and would encourage anyone interested to get involved. This is an opportunity for anyone with a keen interest in digital and who is willing to participate in co-creation of ideas/materials and contribute to digital experiments with other like-minded peers.

What benefits will being involved bring?

Richard Sanderson, who will be leading the Digital Development Consultation Group said: This is a fantastic opportunity for staff to be involved and lead the way in a ground-breaking initiative. Through the programme, we will be asking colleagues to identify ideas for digital experiments, share good practice, learn by doing and play a crucial part in influencing our future ways of working and what it means to be part of a digitally enabled university.

For those who volunteer, they will be able to collaborate with like-minded peers with whom they would not normally work with and actively participate in a dynamic and cross-functional environment”.
