DigiFest 2021

DigiFest 2021 shone a spotlight on our digital literacy framework and the new opportunities for staff, including LinkedIn Learning.

Through a range of keynotes, student panels and workshops, the conference provided valuable insight into the latest research, thinking and resources available to colleagues to enhance the development of their digital, inclusive and active teaching.

The event aimed to share good practice in using and embedding digital literacy in the curriculum, and provide opportunities to learn new skills and tools.
