One of the most important lessons that institutions all over the world have learned from the disruptive impact of the COVID pandemic is that we need to be more resilient and better prepared for an unpredictable future. As a result, institutions are making big investments in digital transformation in order to offer online/blended/digital learning in different formats to meet the needs of an increasingly diverse student population. However, one of the misconceptions held fast by many stakeholders at the institution is that digital transformation is an IT issue, which is not relevant to teaching and learning. Or is it? Participates in this session will be engaged to review, examine, and reflect on 1) what digital transformation entails at an academic institution, 2) how to ensure quality in teaching and learning at course, program and institutional level during digital transformation, and 3) how each of us participates in the digital transformation and what we can collectively contribute to ensure student success regardless the role each of us play at the institution.
