We will be delivering several training sessions for staff throughout January. If you are unable to attend any of these sessions, please feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a conversation with a member of our team.
We’re fast approaching the end of semester 1 and that also marks the halfway point for this year’s Student Digital Champions.

Firstly, can you explain what a Student Digital Champion is?
Jeffrey: A Student Digital Champion is someone who can help others with their digital learning and developing their digital capabilities.
Laurie: It is somebody who bring their own experiences as a student to promote and assist others with the skills and knowledge needed online.
What have you enjoyed most about your role?
Laurie: The ability to express myself creatively and learn new skills whilst being able to help other students.
