About the Webinar
Please note: This session will take place from 14:00–15:00 Central European Summer Time.
For most of the higher education sector, digital transformation in the pre-pandemic era was a luxury advocated mainly by CIOs and a few progressive vice chancellors and rectors. With the advent of the so-called ‘Great Lockdown’ earlier in 2020, the virtual delivery of education and remote working emerged as a necessity for business continuity. Since then, attitudes to digitalisation have shifted. While the global pandemic presents massive opportunities for the sector to better integrate digital tools across academic and operational terrains, institutions risk falling prey to the trap of digital delusion, adopting technology merely for the sake of technology. Veterans of this work know that the widespread use of Zoom or Teams alone do not lead to the systemic change at the heart of digital transformation.
Our webinar will go deeper into this topic and feature three main elements:
- A review of HUMANE benchmarking survey data on pre- and post-outbreak attitudes towards digital transformation and investments
- Snapshots of global best practices in developing digital transformation strategies and leveraging data and technology to address specific learning and operational challenges
- A panel discussion with higher education experts on their experiences leading digital transformation initiatives and overcoming common challenges (e.g., financial, cultural, organisational) to adoption
