In this lab, we’ll show you how to develop a Digital Learning Strategy (DLS) for your institution―a blueprint for technology advancements, workforce training, and cultural adjustments that support the institution's digital learning objectives. We’ll review the steps and methods for enhancing learning by offering flexible, equitable pathways to student success as part of your institution's digital transformation. You’ll learn how to develop a DLS by aligning resources and offering a common vision for learners, faculty, staff, and administration in your area of focus. We'll provide a Digital Learning Strategy framework, assist you in assessing a campus area to explore opportunities for a DLS implementation, and equip you to plan, recommend, and lead the implementation's subsequent steps.
