- Brief description of the topic: The term “digital transformation” is overused, overinflated, and, quite frankly, is not the right construct for thinking about digital in much of higher education. Being a modern, digital college or university will come to mean different things for different institutions. For some, it will mean an emphasis on technology-enabled modes of delivery; for others, a seamless and modern on-campus student experience. Institutions must move away from binary thinking—tech-enabled or not—and focus on creating an environment in which digital technologies, capabilities, and experiences are seamlessly woven into the organization and eventually become imbued in its DNA, just as any living organism evolves. In this webinar, industry analyst and former higher ed CIO, Raechelle Clemmons will talk about the path to becoming a digital campus, the growing importance of student and employee experience (Cx) in a post-COVID world, and the implications of technology use that institutions and individual faculty, staff, and students will need to grapple with higher education digitally evolves.
