Fwd: Save the date: 3-4 June 2020 for the ucisa Spotlight on Digital Capabilities conference


Title:     DCG-DEG Spotlight on Digital Capabilities 2020

Date:     Wednesday 3 June – Thursday 4 June 2020 

Venue:  Birmingham Conference and Events Centre


After the success of ucisa DCG Spotlight 5, we are delighted to announce the Digital Capabilities Group (DCG) will be collaborating with the Digital Education Group (DEG) again to organise this year's event.

It will take place on 3 – 4 June at the Birmingham Conference and Events Centre, just a few steps from New Street Station, in Birmingham.


If you weren't able to attend the 2019 event, here's what some of our delegates said:


'I wasn't sure what to expect and it was a smaller conference than others I have attended (in terms of numbers of delegates and sessions). This worked very well and allowed for much better networking and less FOMO.'


'Really good. Packed with relevant, interesting sessions. A really worthwhile 2 days.'


'[I] met lots of people from different types of support areas in a Uni -usually I just meet people in similar job to mine.'


'Being able to hear what other institutions are doing to help develop digital capabilities'



This year, we'll be focussing on student skills development. We will be encouraging student participation and presentations.

We would like to invite contributions for plenary speakers and parallel sessions from a wide range of roles e.g. academic staff, academic development professionals, learning technologists, IT trainers, Library and other professional services. 

A call for papers will be sent out shortly, with theme and session details. We had a fantastic response to last year's call and are looking forward to hearing about the great work of our community. 


We'll provide full details on the call for papers, programme and booking arrangements in due course.


Twitter hashtag for the event is #udigcap. 


We look forward to seeing you in June!


Best wishes,


DCG/DEG Conference Committee
