Institutional strategies and the delivery of research and teaching are underpinned by digital, never more so than during the COVID-19 emergency. This workshop will engage leaders in understanding the ramifications for leading in this increasingly digital world, reflecting on some of the lessons learned during 2020, and looking forward through a digital lens at what might be possible and what might be needed in Higher Education over the next five years.

Going beyond the strategic use of digital assets to achieve institutional goals, and issues of fluency and literacy, digital is now manifested in nearly every aspect of leadership engagement. Our leadership identity has a strong digital dimension, how we communicate and build trust operates across digital platforms, and the behaviours we model for others is captured and expressed through digital technologies. Our digital awareness has to grow to match this changing world.

This session will be delivered by Doug Parkin, with input from James Clay and Lawrie Phipps, JISC
