  • Developing, adopting or adapting digital tools for learning, sharing thoughts on areas such as user needs research, content and technical development, usability testing, piloting and awareness raising, evaluation, future proofing and strategic thinking;
  • Sharing lessons and insights that will be useful to colleagues working across the sector such as insights into user needs, what you would (and wouldn’t) do next time on a project, unexpected issues (and triumphs), etc.
