Digital education aligns with the social justice ethos of Queen Mary. Our primary aim is to broaden access to education, especially to students of diverse backgrounds who are most often under-represented in higher education. We want to help create the next generation of doctors, dentists and health professionals, ready to tackle the global health problems in a post-pandemic and post-digital world.— Professor Chie Adachi, Dean For Digital Education (FMD)
The Digital Education Studio is a flagship initiative in our drive to become 'the most inclusive university of its kind, anywhere’ by making higher education more accessible, particularly to people who might not otherwise have the opportunity to study at a university. Since our founding we’ve been at the forefront of medical education, training the next generation of health professionals ready to solve global health issues. We are rooted in the unrivalled ethnic diversity of east London and work vigorously to provide learning opportunities to all, particularly within our local community. Digital Education is a vital new frontier of this mission, especially in the post-pandemic and post-digital world of today.
This newly established design studio encompasses the multi-disciplinary team of our digital education experts to transform the modern classroom, delivering new innovative programmes and courses. By firmly applying a ‘digital-first’ lens we hope to create new opportunities and learning experiences that would be otherwise impossible. At the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry we are working to challenge and remove the artificial barrier between ‘in-person’ and ‘online’ education, incorporating the latest technology to provide our students with the flexibility and productive learning environment that’s personalised for them.
Our Digital Education Studio integrates the best in digital pedagogy and technology with our world-leading research to create opportunity for all.
Working at Queen Mary means being part of a unique, world-class global University with a long, proud history of providing opportunity for the less privileged and otherwise under-represented. Everyone at our University takes part in meaningful endeavours to improve lives locally, nationally and internationally. Our staff, students and alumni are the heart and soul of Queen Mary and we provide an inclusive and nurturing working environment where staff can develop, flourish and achieve their full potential.
We are a research intensive university with 92% of our papers rated as world-leading or internationally significant. We also place 2nd in Dentistry and 3rd in Medicine globally for highly cited research. We work with numerous NHS trusts, chiefly Barts Health NHS Trust which delivers 2 million episodes of care each year.
Queen Mary offers professional development opportunities through internal and external schemes, 30 days of annual leave and flexible working arrangements. Inclusivity is one of our fundamental core values at Queen Mary and all staff can take part in Equality, Diversity and Inclusion work as part of their role. Our Digital Education Studio is a newly established initiative and you will have an opportunity in setting and shaping its activity and development.
