Our first webinar in the series saw nearly 700 individuals register from 63 countries. The session focussed on how and why higher education institutions are building digital into their core capabilities, and the ways in which digital capabilities can be prioritised for impact. Snapshots of the key points are shared below.

These include shifts in government policy and funding, changing perspectives on the future of work and a growing range of non-traditional options for students – not to mention the impact of technology advancements on access and on interaction with the learning experience itself.
