Delivering transformational teaching and research in a new world

21 October 2020 | 09:30 - 17:40 (UTC+3)

Thank you to everyone who joined us online for the Digital Transformation Forum 2020.

The event brought together experts from across higher education to examine the evolving role of digital technologies in the transformation and preservation of higher education around the world.

Questions we explored included:

  • Has the impact of Covid-19 accelerated existing trends or catalysed new strategic innovations entirely?
  • Has online learning created a more level playing field or do we risk creating new inequalities?
  • What are the essential skills academics need in order to deliver high-quality online courses – or do we risk being replaced by robots?
  • Do we understand how to use the right data to improve student engagement and success?
  • How is digital technology empowering researchers to adapt their techniques and models of collaboration, and to improve impact?


The forum was facilitated by our new immersive virtual events platform. All sessions have been recorded and are available for registered delegates to rewatch on-demand until 31 December 2020.
