Webinar | Leveraging Digital Transformation Principles to Effect Institutional Change

What's transformative at one institution might not be transformative at another. And each institution’s appetite for digital transformation (Dx) is driven by its own context, needs, and goals. How can higher education leaders leverage Dx principles to best move innovation efforts forward? Understanding one's own institutional culture and being able to tailor campus conversations to fit is an important consideration for success. In this webinar, three leaders will present examples from their own institutions of digital transformation initiatives. Focusing on the importance of understanding one’s particular institutional conventions and context, they’ll discuss ways that digital transformation can be used as an approach to drive institutional change. They’ll also reflect on lessons learned from the pandemic and provide recommendations for how to take advantage of those lessons as we move forward.


  • Understand digital transformation principles
  • Learn the importance of tailoring communication strategies to match institutional culture
  • Understand how the Dx Institutional Self-Assessment and other tools can aid leaders in planning Dx initiatives
