Two members of staff from City of Wolverhampton College have become part of a global community of educators, promoting the benefits of information technology to students, apprentices, tutors and support staff across the organisation.
The duo – Conrad Taylor, business learning & technologies manager, and Adam Dwight, learning innovator and lecturer in education studies and professional development – have been selected as Microsoft Innovative Educator Experts (MIEE) for the 2022/23 academic year, the third year in a row that they have achieved the accolade.
Each year, Microsoft selects MIEEs experts for their passion about their work, their collaborative spirit and how they strive to inspire others to use technology in education.
Since 2020, the college has used the national Inspiring Digital Enterprise Awards (iDEAS) programme to increase the digital skills of students, apprentices and staff across the organisation.
The programme enables participants to complete online challenges to earn digital badges and work towards industry-recognised bronze, silver and gold awards.
