Welcome to the February programme of staff development under our banner of Developing Digital Excellence.  We have brought together a range of activities and support, including an opportunity to take a look at our brand new broadcast TV studio.

We are aware that Semester 2 has started in earnest now and our programme in February will hopefully support some of those pressing developments you have on the horizon.

Staff from our teams’ involved in Developing Digital Excellence will also be available for a chat at the up and coming Staff Well Being Day –  Monday 10th February.    We will be there to talk about  how we can help in terms of developing ICT and digital skills and relieve some of the stress and anxiety around using new technology.  Come and have a chat to find out more about the programme, and also our Blackboard course area which might be a useful resource for you.
