FW: New Open Access Book: Shaping Higher Education with Students: Ways to Connect Research and Teaching

Dear Colleagues

Just a quick note to say that this is the latest of three open access books produced in a series that started with A Connected Curriculum for Higher Education and was followed by Developing the Higher Education Curriculum. This third book brings students' perspectives and ideas to centre stage. In case you've missed any of these I've listed all three references with their direct links below - please do add them to your reading lists where appropriate and forward them to colleagues, as they can be downloaded freely and in full anywhere in the world.

FW: Upcoming ELESIG webinars


Here are details of the next couple of ELESIG webinars.


No need to register. Just follow the links to turn up (Adobe Connect).


Using the Jisc tracker to research students' experiences of e-learning

Helen Beetham, consultant


The Jisc 'Digital student experience' survey has been developed over three years, originally through research reviews, original research and consultation with students, and subsequently through extensive user trials (ca 30k student users) and factor analysis of the survey instrument. The original aim was to provide credible, actionable data to the institutions that run it. (There was an associated goal of improving student-focused research through guidance and a supported community of practice.) However, the volume and quality of data collected offer huge opportunities for research into the learner experience, nationally and internationally. Which of those opportunities are valid and valuable? What kind of research questions can (and should) be asked?

12 – 1pm British Summer Time, 27 March


How do learners experience the development of digital capabilities in the curriculum?

Tunde Varga-Atkins, University of Liverpool and doctoral candidate University of Lancaster.


The development of digital capabilities has received much attention in education in the last few years. My doctoral study, adopting JISC's digital capabilities framework, aims to explore how the development of digital capabilities are planned, enacted and experienced in the curriculum in particular disciplinary contexts using multiple-case study methodology. The units of analysis will encompass undergraduate modules from two disciplines (engineering and management), drawing on a range of informants' data, including academic, employer/professional, student perspectives - and documentary sources. In this webinar, I will focus on reporting students' experience of their development of digital capabilities. I will also discuss the research methods I have drawn on, such as documentary analysis, interviews, surveys and observation and what I have learnt about using these methods for learner experience research.

12 – 1pm British Summer Time, 2 May


See elesig.ning.com/events for the full programme for 2018 (requires sign in)


ELESIG is a community of researchers and practitioners from higher, further and skills sector education who are involved in investigations of learners' experiences and uses of technology in learning.

ELESIG members work together to share knowledge and practice and develop a shared repertoire of resources which will be of benefit to the community and the sector
