Invitation to Digital Strategy Forum

A Digital Strategy Forum has been scheduled on Friday 1 July at 12:05pm to 12:55pm and is open to all University staff.

This regular forum will provide staff with the opportunity to hear from and feed back to senior staff on any matter relating to digital in the University. Colleagues can find out about and comment on the digital activities that are supporting the delivery of Aberdeen 2040 and the current institutional priorities in this key area.     

Members of the Digital Strategy Committee, Digital & Information Services staff and sponsors of key projects will all be on hand to engage in discussion.     

The session will be introduced by Karl Leydecker, Chair of Digital Strategy Committee, and open dialogue, feedback and suggestions are greatly encouraged.     

This will be a hybrid event, allowing people to attend in person or online. The online element will be held on Microsoft Teams, with colleagues online able to contribute fully to the discussion. You can join using this link. 

The in-person venue will be finalised in the coming week and information about this will be publicised in this online poster.  It will assist the planning of the event if people could indicate if and how they intend to join the forum using this simple form.
