What is the DIP?

The Digital Innovation Partnership (DIP) envisions students working in partnership with staff to enhance and encourage the use of digital technology in learning and teaching. Staff and students collaborate together to design, implement and evaluate a digital practice within learning and teaching, where they believe it would make a positive impact.

The scheme proposes a three way partnership, comprising a Digital Associate (a digitally-confident student), a Digital Innovator (a staff member who would like to use digital practices in teaching and learning but would like more guidance), and a Digital Advocate (a staff member who can offer advice on implementing digital teaching practices).  

Partnerships are supported by Leicester Learning Institute through a schedule of light-touch events across the year, and DIP teams will be recognised for their participation.
