I am coordinating the project “Digital Future” at Beuth University in Berlin founded by the Stifterverband in which we develop strategies for the use of digital media in every department in 2016 and then a university-wide strategy in 2017 based on the department-strategies. One of the key approaches in this project is Open Innovation, in which we focus on bringing in different stakeholders and different perspectives together. Each department has already appointed a digitalisation representative who together with a strategy-team with representatives of different stakeholder-groups from a given department (including professors, students, alumni, researchers, program directors, lab directors etc.) drive the development of the digital strategy in the respective department. Not long ago I presented our strategy development process at the Workshop on e-Learning with the focus on digital representatives as change agents. You can see my slides below.
Are you involved in a similar process or can point me to an higher education organisation developing digital strategies? If yes, I’d be glad to receive your comment and share ideas and lessons learned!
