Welcome to the Digital Innovation Partnership!

Welcome to the Digital Innovation Partnership Scheme (DIP), aiming to support the development of digital learning and teaching practices with staff and students. If you’re looking to make a meaningful digital change in your learning and teaching, from the use of electronic marking and collaborative apps, to the creation of virtual simulations and interactive tutorials, then you’ve come to the right place. 

Using a student-staff partnership approach, DIP partners learn from each other, co-design, co-develop and implement a new digital approach to address a challenge within teaching and learning. We focus on digital practices that are adapted to the specific disciplinary context, instead of simply offering IT skills training for software.

During 2017/2018 we supported twenty-three partnerships. For example, these projects include:

  • Using pre-class videos of chemical model making to improve student understanding of 3D structures.
  • Using collaborative apps to improve develop discussion and engagement in lectures and seminars.
  • Developing a virtual reality tour of campus to help students orientate themselves before they arrive at the University.

The Digital Innovation Partnership is currently recruiting 15 projects for the 18/19 academic year.
