DigiFest is an annual event where we celebrate the sharing of good practice in media-enhanced teaching to enhance our students' learning experience. This year it took place on 8 September 2021.
Through a range of keynotes, student panels and workshops, the conference provided valuable insight into the latest research, thinking and resources available to colleagues to enhance the development of their digital, inclusive and active teaching.
