Some thoughts on the Jisc co-design consultation. Hopefully I’ll get beyond part 1 before the initial consultation closes on Friday.
There’s a lot of social media chatter about #codesign16 at the moment which is the Jisc Co-design consultation. So first things first… what are Jisc asking and why…
Essentially they are trying to decide what their future R&D project focus should be and which might be turned into technology services for their ‘members’ (aka subscribers).
Jisc are currently focused on three research and development projects:
- digital capability
- learning analytics
- research data shared service
They are looking for the next set of projects and the co-design consulation is part of this process. It aims to produce:
Ideas for technology services that we could deliver to Jisc members to help them improve education and research
Jisc have proposed 6 areas for the community to discuss, some of which (three?) will be taken forward when the winners are announced in February 2017, followed by projects from March onwards. The 6, in no particular order, are:
- What does the imminent arrival of the intelligent campus mean for universities and colleges?
- What should the next generation of digital learning environments do?
- What should a next-generation research environment look like?
- Which skills do people need to prepare for research practice now and in the future?
- What would truly digital apprenticeships look like?
- How can we use data to improve teaching and learning?
That’s it for now. In part 2 (hopefully tomorrow) I hope to share some thoughts on the one that interests me most – number 2 or #ngdle
For now, having read up on the ultimate purpose of #codesign16 – ideas for technology services – one wonders would Jisc considering entering the
VLE, sorry DLE market.
