Consultation events

The consultation process is now over. This page describes the consultation events organised during March-September 2014. You can read outcomes from these events on our online consultation pages.


How are institutions responding to students’ changing expectations of their digital environment? How do the experiences students have at university prepare them to flourish in a digital society and economy? What are institutions doing to engage students in dialogue about digital issues, and to gather intelligence about their changing needs?

Building on the findings of the Digital Student project, a series of live events are being hosted during March-July 2014. This blog will be used to summarise, continue and widen the debate. Outcomes of the consultation process will include resources to help institutions as they respond to students’ changing needs, and a series of actions at national level for Jisc and its co-design partners.

You are warmly invited to be part of this discussion. Our second and final open event takes place on 16th July 2014 in Birmingham. Following the success of our first event on 4th May, we anticipate that this will be lively and well attended (please note that numbers are limited). Everyone with an interest in this area is warmly invited to attend, including:

  • Heads of Library
  • Heads of ICT/IT/IS
  • Heads of e-Learning and educational/staff development
  • Professionals and managers in student-facing roles
  • Strategic managers
  • Students

We are particularly keen to welcome back delegates who contributed to scenario building at our first open event. This time they will discuss the outcomes of the consultation process and focus on practical solutions. An updated and revised set of resources will be formally launched at this time.

Jisc will cover students’ reasonable travel expenses for attending.

Jisc is also funding a parallel study of the further education and skills sector, and a series of consultation events specific to this community will be announced shortly.

To register your interest in attending and joining the conversation please email Sarah Knight.
