03/24/2022 15:10 03/24/2022 15:35 Creating the University of the Future In collaboration with Kinly

This session will focus on the changes decision makers in higher education institutions are faced with in the wake of COVID-19 and the rapid change to new teaching methods, new spaces and the current gap in the industry between the technology and its end users.  

Kinly and its client, Staffordshire University, explain how they overcame these hurdles together as partners, and together make sure Staffordshire is becoming: The University of the Future. 

We will do this by: 
  • Looking at how we can help to connect all stakeholders; educational specialists, IT directors, AV specialists, teachers and students in forming their demand in terms of digital learning strategy and vision?  
  • Discussing how can we unburden stakeholders not just in terms of technical solutions, but on all aspects of the learning transformation: digital content strategies, blended learning, hybrid learning, educational consulting, are subjects that need to be addressed and understood and require a different mindset.  
  • Examining how we can bridge the gap between institutions and their many technology partners. One contact, one contract partner to assist them in making sense of the spaghetti of solutions and vendors, as well as help them reach the next step in student/teacher effectiveness, satisfaction and overall digital transformation.
