Digital Universities UK brings together higher education, industry and policy leaders working at the intersection of academic innovation and technology to reimagine universities in the digital age.
To coincide with the rapid pace of innovation, institutions must break new ground and position higher education as a flexible, inclusive lifelong learning experience that empowers today’s modern learner for life and work in a digital society.
The event will present the latest challenges and opportunities of digital transformation along with the culture change needed to enable global sharing of knowledge and learning without boundaries. Hosted in partnership with the University of Exeter, you can expect keynotes, interactive panels, live demonstrations, intimate discussions, practical workshops, unparalleled networking and much more.
Digital Universities UK has really opened my eyes to the challenges facing the higher education sector as well as to the opportunities that lie ahead!
