​​The Digital Support Partnership Research Project


The Digital Support Partnership​ is a 14-month project supporting staff to help student wellbeing and engagement with learning and teaching and over the academic year 2020-21. As part of this strategic project, we are collecting and analysing information about staff and students’ experiences which we would disseminate and publish externally in the educational research field.


We are gathering data from staff and students in a number of ways, including surveys and focus groups.
