Research at Risk

Get involved again… co-design stage 2

Late last year we kicked off a co-design consultation to identify what big new ideas Jisc should focus on once we have completed our current R&D projects. That consultation focused on 6 possible challenges:

  • What does the imminent arrival of the intelligent campus mean for universities and colleges?
  • What should the next generation of digital learning environments do?
  • What should a next-generation research environment look like?
  • Which skills do people need to prepare for research practice now and in the future?
  • What would truly digital apprenticeships look like?
  • How can we use data to improve teaching and learning?
  • Two challenges were in the research area.

    Thanks to all the interesting discussion and contributions around these challenges we have come up with ideas for how Jisc could help with both of the research challenges posed.

    We need you!

    We are now reaching out to Jisc members and other experts to decide which of those ideas would be most valuable for us to pursue. We are asking you to express support for any of the ideas you particularly like or feel there is a real need for development in the area.

    Please visit our co-design 2016-17 page to find out more. If you have any suggestions for the research challenges that don’t fit in our feedback form then please contact the relevant challenge lead ( for Research Skills or for Research Environments) as we are keen to hear all types of feedback and ideas.

    The feedback period closes on 30th January and we will announce the ideas we plan to explore further in early February. If you want to share, then you can tweet with #codesign17
