Taster/Introductory Sessions

Taster sessions are a great place to start engaging with the programme. These sessions run regularly at every campus, so there is plenty of opportunities to attend. During a taster session, you’ll find out more about what the area means, how it can relate to you and your team and how it could relate to students. You’ll have a chance to get hands-on with some activities that will help you explore some of the latest tools and technologies and question what is most important to you. You’ll also receive a goodybag full of useful links for you to take away after the session. Book onto a taster sessio through the Blackboard course.

Initial activity with staff

Before launching the programme we ran an activity with as many staff teams as we could to explore where they felt specific digital skills lay in relation to the 6 capability areas and how important they felt they were.

We put together a series of cards containing typical digitally realated tasks or activities, such as making a video, using the TEAL screens or collaborating more efficiently and asked staff to place these skills as either; essential, interesting or not essential.

This activity helped us to think about key digital skills and capabilities that staff wanted and helped us to align them with our programme. Here are their results:

Glenside Library Team

Bower Ashton Library Team

OBA

Frenchay Enquiries Team

Collections

Library Team at Alexandra Warehouse

ACE Frenchay Team

Research Team

If we didn’t get round to speaking to your team, do get in touch, we’d like to speak to as many people in SSS as possible so we can hear a range of thoughts and ideas that could influence the direction of the programme.
