WATCH: #LUNCHTIMESESSIONS ‘The Evolution of Going Digital’

Our first #LUNCHTIMESESSION, ‘The Evolution of Going Digital’ with hosts Dr Claire Indans and Carl Hardwick, took place online on Tuesday 16th May 2023. 

In Claire’s words: “This discussion details the inception, process, and review of #’going digital’ in which a paradigmatic shift from a post-post-modern perspective to that of a hybridised synergistic model occurred.

Going Digital was a collaborative project between the leadership and management team, the delivery team, and administration. In terms of education, the pandemic was a disruptor within educational leadership and management. It forced a reframe of provision, primarily this educative reframe included an increase in situational leadership, a rise of structure, and a reduction of agency. Early pandemic focusses were predominantly reactive and responsive operational activities, as opposed to strategy.

Once stabilised, new remote ways of working were established via a community of practice and through resumption of team autonomy and agency. Collaborative research, and a subsequent 18-month going digital project commenced in May 2021. The whole organisation were involved in a process to enable understanding of former and existing operational and teaching practices. Digital Curriculum growth was the aim to enable a transformative process to emerge, whilst aligning, serving, and incorporating stakeholder (learners and employers) requirements. The leadership and management team encountered unprecedented territory when a semantic shift transpired; an evolution of a new language occurred as did new practices.”
