“Technology is allowing us to rethink the entire model for higher education, where the power is, how the conversation works, and how we best use our time and our resources.”
– Ross Parry, University of Leicester
In this episode, we look to our academic contemporaries for digital workplace inspiration.
University of Leicester is leading the way with its “Digital Campus”. More than just the university’s web presence, Ross Parry, Deputy Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Digital), and Lauren Vargas, Digital Fellow, explain what the “Digital Campus” is and share some remarkable examples of how technology is being used across the university to enhance learning and teaching, facilitate research and improve efficiency in management and administration.
Listen in awe at how the university is providing an integrated digital experience for its staff and students, understand how the corporate world can learn from this bold digital strategy, and ask yourself – is your workplace really a “digital campus”?
