Welcome to the Digital Innovation Partnership!

“It’s gone beyond what I expected, and it’s given a little bit more to the department.”
(Digital Innovator)

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.

Since our establishment in 2017, we have supported thirty-three projects, such as:

  • 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.

If you would like to learn more about the scheme, take a look at the What is DIP? tab. Here you will find information about our aims, roles available, project guidelines and routes of recognition.
