Join us for keynotes, workshops, ‘show-and-tell’ presentations and Lightning Strike sessions designed to support your development of digitally enhanced, active inclusive learning and teaching.

This year DigiFest will offer a combination of a workshop day followed by a conference day on each campus:

  • Cambridge, 9-10 September 2019
  • Chelmsford, 11-12 September 2019.

Keynote speakers include Jitse van Ameijde, Senior Learning Designer at The Open University speaking about ‘Designing for student retention: The ICEBERG model’; and Dr Richard Windle, discussing ‘Students at the HELM. Learners as co-producers.’

Workshops will introduce new learning technologies such as the MyShowcase e-portfolio and the Zoom web conferencing and collaboration platform as well as providing an opportunity to share good practice.

The full programme will be released in early August. Colleagues wishing to present on any of the days are asked to submit a proposal online before 5 August 2019.
