We are very pleased to have been welcomed back by the Learning and Teaching Enhancement Unit (LTEU) to deliver a second session on digital skills as part of their Academy Forum programme this academic year.
The Academy Forum provides a platform for staff and students to share good practice in learning and teaching. For announcements and more information about upcoming sessions, you can follow LTEU’s Academy Forum Blog.
We delivered the first session on 7 December and you can read a summary of our discussion. During this second session, taking place online on Wednesday 19 April ’23 (10:00-11:30), we will build on our discussions from the first session and further explore how we can support our students to make the most of technology.
On Tuesday 28.03.23 (12:00-14:00), the Research, Business and Innovation department have arranged an in-person seminar to help researchers decide whether their app idea is feasible and how to go about making it happen.
The seminar will be led by Professor Chris Price from the Computer Science Department.

Hello everyone, my name is Shân Saunders, and I am the new digital capabilities and skills development coordinator. I completed my undergraduate and MPhil at Aberystwyth and since graduating in 2022 I have been looking to work with student engagement and satisfaction. I have also been a member of the Your Voice Matters team since September 2021. I have been working with the digital skills team since August 2022 and have so far worked on JISC’s Digital Discovery Tool and the Digital Skills Library. I’m really looking forward to working on the Digital Skills Festival in November 2023 and overall discussing what we offer to students and how we can improve the delivery of our resources. I am also looking forward to the opportunity to conduct more focus groups and training with students and staff surrounding digital skills and resources.
