Digital Transformation

With digital teaching excellence and the creation of outstanding student learning experiences at the heart of the operations of the Digital Transformation team in SLAR, we are pivotal in shaping and supporting the institution in innovative approaches to digital learning and delivery.

The Digital transformation team comprises Digital Learning, Learning Systems and Online Learning Development teams, and provides a synergistic approach to the support of an outstanding student experience through the integration of technical and pedagogic expertise directly interfacing with teaching staff.

The team supports the implementation of Teesside 2025 by promoting innovation in pedagogic practice to enhance excellence in the student and learning experience with particular emphasis on:

  • Leading excellence through Digital Learning: supporting and collaborating with colleagues to design innovative learning & assessment activities. Utilising technology to help improve student learning and engagement.
  • Designing outstanding online learning experiences and portfolio: through the construction of a bespoke student-centred learning design journey, the Online Learning team designs suites of academic, CPD and bespoke courses, using innovative design packages. The team delivers an Academic Transformation Programme to coach and mentor teaching staff on excellence in online learning design, development and delivery.
