D-TRANSFORM project- 2016 01 20

Public Digital Policies in Higher Education: A comparative survey between Spain, France, Italy and the United Kingdom

The D-TRANSFORM project is a first attempt to set up a "University Leader Program" at the European level, addressed to university presidents and vice-presidents on the role of e-Education in shaping University strategies.

 

The project team is to publish a series of surveys about digital transformation of higher education in Europe providing:

  • the state-of the art on national policies
  • the analysis of business models
  • the implementation of Open Educational resources

The surveys will be included in a final report making recommendations for university governance concerning e-learning as a lever of transformation of higher education in Europe. The 1st survey focuses on a comparative analysis of national policies for university digital transformation, implemented since the beginning of the 21st century. The main outcome of the survey is that no generalization is possible. While all policies can be categorized within the general trends of the digital transformation, the dynamic of each higher education system puts different actors at the centre, according to the general logics of the systems. The challenge is then to produce conclusions that allow each partner country to engage in a transformation adapted to its own national context.

The report can be downloaded in English and French from the D-TRANSFORM website: http://www.dtransform.eu/.

Launch of project website

The D-TRANSFORM project is a first attempt to set up a "University Leader Program" at the European level, addressed to university presidents and vice-presidents on the role of e-Education in shaping University strategies. It gathers together specialists of e-Education from various institutions (University, higher education ministries, consultancy in learning innovation, e-Education networks) and primarily considers that digital technologies, like Massive Open Online Courses, (MOOCs) and Open Educational Resources are an essential lever for transforming the higher education systems and adapting them to the new needs of youth and requirements of work-market (lifelong training).
D-TRANSFORM intends to produce recommendations on various aspects of a university strategy on the use of digital tools. Based on these recommendations, D-TRANSFORM will set up two “leadership schools”, dedicated, for the 1st time in Europe, to the university governances.
We are pleased to announce the launch of the official D-TRANSFORM website: http://www.dtransform.eu/

Piloting at BME, Hungary

The piloting process of the STAY-IN platform at the Budapest University of Technology and Economics has started in February 2014 and involves users from the Faculty of Economic and Social Sciences, the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Informatics and the Student Center. The platform intends to assisst to the already existing student support system at the University with its several available functions. The students will be able to make any request concerning the help they need: in e.g. study, financial, psychological, administrative issues, etc. One can imagine a site, where the student – after registering – is able to send his or her request, which is then being received by the coordinator and is assigned to an advisor or specialist.
