This webinar will report on findings from a Jisc study into students expectations and experiences of the digital environment at university. The study reviewed existing research and survey evidence from institutions, as well as conducting original interviews and focus groups. Jisc and its co-design partners (UCISA, SCONUL, RLUK and RUGIT) are now supporting a consultation phase across the higher education sector which will inform the final guidance to institutions and further actions by Jisc and its partners. The webinar is an opportunity for ALT members to take part in this consultation, not only exploring how the findings are reflected at your own institution but helping to shape the future of the project. Jisc is also about to launch a parallel study and consultation process in further education.
