CAL’s Digital Champions (DigiChamps) network runs alongside the Digital Humanities Forum to support the innovative use of technology in teaching and research in the College.
The ‘DigiChamps’ network is a joint venture between the College’s Digital Education team and the Birmingham Environment for Academic Research (BEAR) group based in IT Services. There is something for everyone from those who want to explore how to begin using technology but don’t know where to start, to colleagues who want to explore a possible project, or those have a mature research proposal that might develop into a grant application with access to the appropriate resources.
The forms of help on offer range from training sessions on finding and curating the best materials made available by others, content creation (e.g. how to engage with social media without it taking over your life) and advanced research skills, one-to-one consultancy and where possible, support for individual innovative projects.
More information is available on the project’s website.
