From Crisis to Strategy: Digital Transformation or Digital Delusion?

Pre-pandemic, digital transformation was a progressive, aspirational goal for many universities. In 2020, it quickly emerged as a necessity for business continuity.

Download this 1-hour webinar from HUMANE and EAB to learn how your team can go from the digital transformation question of “how to build a digital university?", to “how quickly can it be done?”

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.

This on-demand webinar goes deeper into this topic and feature three main elements:

1). A review of HUMANE benchmarking survey data on pre- and
     post-outbreak attitudes towards digital transformation and

2). Snapshots of global best practices in developing digital
     transformation strategies and leveraging data and technology to
     address specific learning and operational challenges

3). 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
