MAD Digital Challenge

Published at Apr 10, 2017

Presentation for Jisc Change Agent Network CANagogy event at the University of Exeter on 20 April 2017

The EFC MAD Digital Challenge objective was to engage learners in proposing new ways of learning, teaching and assessing and improving learner experience cross college through technology. The project was launched during entrepreneurial week November 16th and 33 students proposed a total of 20 ideas. These raised 890 votes of which 508 were valid. The ideas went through two selection processes: minimum number of votes and a panel with selection criteria. The 5 shortlisted ideas were invited to present at a Dragon’s Den event on January 25th. Our Dragons included two industry professionals, our Principal and a member of Jisc. A proposal has been awarded £2000 to see it to life and is currently being developed until end of July 2017.
