The University of Derby have recently created Digital Media Producer roles for students which provide opportunities for students to learn and develop through employment, working alongside the Centre for Excellence in Learning and Teaching (CELT) and academic staff.

During this panel discussion, featuring the Digital Media Producers themselves along with members of the CELT team, you will find out how and why these roles were created, how it has enabled co-production between staff and students, positively impacted the students involved and expanded the media-based course content available for learners across the University.
