The next steps to improve higher education technology

by Emily Schilling 28 February 2020

The Education Strategy Forum is an invitation-only meeting which brings together leaders within the higher education industry, alongside government representatives, policy makers and solutions providers – such as Crimson. The event was held on the 25th and 26th February, where they discussed the research report they produced, which is based on information obtained from delegates. The delegates are made up of 241 individuals from UK higher education institutions, including 17 Vice-Chancellors and C-Suite, 95 Directors, 84 Heads of Department and 45 members of Senior Management. They were interviewed over the phone and face-to-face, when they discussed trends and issues that are currently being tackled by university leaders. The report discusses the main findings of the research – student experience and engagement, data analytics, transformed learning, and the student journey – as well as discussing spending power, initiatives and investments.
