Views on digitalisation

    By 2028, we have a proven track record of using digitalisation to improve the quality of our education, research, and organisation; to promote good and attractive employment practices; to strengthen our connection with society, and to increase our contribution to the challenges of transition.

    Digitalisation is a driver of innovation. It is rapidly transforming society and professions. The scope and new opportunities require from us that we adapt the content, pedagogy and didactics of our education and the way we work.

    Our core values and the societal challenges we face guide our ambitions for digitalisation. We are committed to the ethical and legal use of digital technology. The purpose of our education and research, and the interests of our students and lecturers are central to the development of new applications. We use digital tools as promising solutions to make our education better and more attractive, but never at the expense of equal
    opportunities, human contact, networking, and professional autonomy.

    In the coming years, we will invest in digitalisation that will enhance and enrich our education, research, and organisation. As an organisation,
    we encourage and facilitate experimentation and innovation with new digital technologies. We are developing mechanisms to identify emerging technologies early and, where proven, to deploy them more widely. We also participate in national and sectoral initiatives and collaborate with other universities (of applied sciences). We use the national knowledge infrastructure on digitalisation to share knowledge, experience and insight and take a leading role in shaping the digitalisation of highe education.

    Our students and staff learn and work in a digital landscape designed from the perspective of their ‘journey’. This digital environment for learning and
    working is inclusive, accessible, intuitive, contextually rich, and meaningful. The digital and onsite learning and working environments are mutually
    reinforcing. In the future, all students and staff will be proficient and comfortable with digital technology. The development of digital skills is an ongoing and a natural part of working and learning. Our students and staff have the skills to manage the social and ethical aspects of digitalisation.
