2:10 PM Interactive Panel Discussion: Where is the Future of Online & e-Leading Heading?

The pace of digital disruption in education is one of the key challenges to traditional models of delivery. Evolving online and e-learning capability has the potential to reach an ever-widening pool of learners, supporting a growing shift towards a life-long learning mindset, where education is more personalised and available whenever required. Universities are incorporating online and e-learning approaches into their education portfolios, but what is required into the future to sustain the delivery of these digital approaches and to keep universities on the front foot of digital innovation. This expert panel discussion will feature DVC/PVC speakers and discuss the sector-wide approach to Online & e Learning: 

  • Are universities responding appropriately and fast enough to digital disruption in education? 
  • What are the key challenges facing universities in responding to these disruptions and could greater collaboration amongst universities be beneficial? 
  • Given changing expectations and the broadening needs of learners, are universities doing enough to actively engage them? What role should online play in this?
  • What will digitally disrupted education look like in 10 years? Will universities be able to keep their competitive edge into the future?
