'Students on Tech' is an innovative partnership between students and the E-learning Group at Aberystwyth University. A talk on the project was jointly presented by one of the students and the staff member who led the project at the Jisc Change Agents Network conference, University of Exeter, 20-21 April 2017. The case study offers a model for partnership with students for effective change. Our aims were to listen to the student voice to improve technology-enhanced learning (TEL) provision and raise the profile of good teaching.

The E-learning Group had carried out a TEL Learning Experience Survey in 2010 and again in 2013 (Gwella Team, 2011). For this project, we hoped to gain an even deeper understanding of student needs and behaviour. We wanted to make our Blackboard site easier to use and to help staff understand better: students’ needs; how students are using technology; what technology helps them.
