Champions is an award-winning community of practice to learn new skills and work practices, create a social and professional connection to colleagues, and to reduce the isolation triggered by the abrupt change to remote working. The community members are practitioners and developers of communal resources: experiences, stories, tools, ways of addressing recurring problems, and have developed their practice through a variety of activities such as problem solving, seeking experience, reusing developments, and growing confidence in the use of digital tools for teaching (Microsoft Teams, Canvas, Zoom).

Join the Champions Community on MS Teams (for University staff only).
The Champions Programme
The Champions Programme was designed and implemented to drive the adoption of Microsoft Teams for Teaching and Learning under the premise that every educator and every member of staff can become a self-directed digital education champion. In September 2019, the project kicked off with the participation of six academics from across all University of Liverpool faculties whose role was to empower others and support the adoption of Microsoft Teams for Learning and Teaching. These “Champions” participated in specialised training and activities as outlined in the Microsoft Teams Champions Programme Roadmap.
