Digital technologies hold enormous potential to enhance quality, equity and efficiency in higher education. Wisely adopted, they can widen access to non-traditional learners, reduce instructional costs, and expand individualised and adaptive instruction. However, realising the full potential of digitalisation – and avoiding its risks – will require that countries comprehensively rethink their policy framework – including how they fund institutions and support learners; how instructors are trained and supported; how quality is assured; and how learning is credentialed. We are now supporting the development of a new strategic framework for digital transformation in higher education in Hungary, and organising a series of Digitalisation in Higher Education webinars for GNE-HE delegates and higher education stakeholders, on their invitation. Key messages, as well as the presentations and poll results from the first webinar, held on 29 October 2020, are available. The next webinar is scheduled for March 2021.
