Strategic and Leadership Perspectives on Digital Capacity in Irish Higher Education
Any type of content formally published in an academic journal, usually following a peer-review process.
This report, commissioned by the National Forum for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning in Higher Education (National Forum), outlines strategic and leadership perspectives on building digital capacity across the Irish higher education sector. Conducted in tandem with the development of an extended roadmap focused on building digital capacity (to be published shortly), it explores and analyses leadership perspectives along with the stated strategic objectives of Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) articulated in the Mission-based Performance Compacts (Compacts). This scoping exercise adds value by analysing the level of explication of digital capacity within institutions’ formal strategies, by exploring the differences and similarities between institutional types in this regard, and by gaining valuable senior management insights into some of the key challenges and opportunities that our institutions are grappling with when it comes to enhancing teaching and learning with digital technology.
