Digitizing Higher Education MOOC

Globally, higher education institutions are grappling with the effects of an increasingly digital world. This course provided an overview of how digitization impacts the economics, administration, academics, and research practices of universities and colleges. Higher education administrators, faculty, staff, and students benefited from this course by exploring the emerging structure and role of higher education.

Participants engaged with key trends that are shaping higher education and learned how these trends are amplified by the growing digital structure of society. In order to prepare their institution to become digital, learners went through processes of evaluating trends, determining impact on education practices, and finally produced a strategic department or organizational planning document.
