Graide at Times Higher Education Digital Universities Uk Event

Jon Allen

The Digital Universities UK event brought together higher education, industry, and policy leaders working at the intersection of academic innovation and technology under one roof to discuss the latest trends and innovations in higher education.As technology continues to evolve and reshape the way we learn and teach, the event provided a platform for attendees to explore the opportunities and challenges that lie ahead. Graide, along with other education professionals, had the opportunity to share insights, network, and gain valuable knowledge that can help shape the future of education.

The talks and sessions at the 4-day event were thought-provoking and highly engaging, and they tackled some of the most pressing issues facing higher education today. The speakers explored how technology can enhance the research experience and enable more efficient, collaborative, and impactful research. They also emphasised the importance of human-centred design principles in creating a student experience that is both personalised and inclusive, highlighting the need for universities to place the needs of students at the centre of their strategies. The discussions on teaching, learning, and assessment innovations were particularly relevant to Graide's work, as the speakers explored new and innovative ways to deliver high-quality education that prepares students for the challenges of the future.

We had fantastic and insightful conversations throughout the event, meeting people with a shared passion for improving education and eager to learn more about Graide's work and how AI can be used to enhance teaching, learning, and assessment.
