Driving Digital Technology in Higher Education
“…Universities have the power to choose the tech tools which are best for them and their budgets. But they cannot do this alone. It’s only by forging a strong partnership between government, technology innovators and the education sector that there will be sustainable, focused solutions which will ultimately support and inspire the learners of today and tomorrow”(The RT Hon Damien Hinds MP, 2018)
The digital technology sector generates approximately £184 billion to the UK’s economy – at a time when higher education institutions are becoming parallel to large corporate organisations implementing big-scaled digital technologies and services into their current infrastructures. The ‘Driving Digital Technology in Higher Education Conference’ will help you to develop a greater understanding of how central and local government, tech businesses and digital investor schemes are developing the landscape of digital tech within higher education whilst striking a balance between businesses and university environments. This in turn will help both student and staff bodies’ become compliant with digital technology facilities and services and revolutionise the overall learning experience and the well-being of both faculty members and students.
The agenda will be based around the government’s recent challenges and developments to launch an education revolution for higher education authorities. Thematic discussions will take place around the areas of: the Department for Education’s priorities regarding a revised digital strategy for universities, the desire for technology to facilitate higher education and to ensure that all universities are utilising the latest technological developments. In addition to this, there will also be lively discussions delineating the concerns of universities digitally operating in line with businesses. There will also be coverage discussing the effectiveness and efficiency of utilising digital technology in order to minimise risk and to improve savings, time-scales and enhance workload levels. As well as this, the agenda will highlight the importance of using digital technology to help reduce the stigma of student mental health and to promote the educational workplace for the disabled community. There will also be: presentations from both government officials and those progressing within the higher education tech industry which will be supplemented by dynamic, innovative panel discussions from technology providers to the UK alongside practical sessions which are designed to be both inspiring and beneficial across both individuals and organisations.
