Overview

The higher education landscape is quickly shifting and evolving due to technological advances, new student expectations, and institutional challenges. How can all leaders help their colleges and universities survive and thrive in this tumultuous time? A digital transformation (Dx) approach allows institutions to address pressing challenges related to mission, such as improving student success, advancing research, and streamlining administration. It can also guide institutional changes to business models, such as attracting new learners or developing partnerships outside the institution. This Learning Lab is appropriate for individuals or teams and will guide you in creating a Dx strategy and process to advance institutional goals.
