About the course
Enabling you to meet like-minded peers and work together to become a digitally-informed and empowered leader, the digital leaders programme will show you how to help your organisation respond more effectively to technology-driven change.
"Strong leadership and a clear vision are essential traits that underpin successful transformation"
Learning and teaching reimagined: a new dawn for higher education
"Establishing a digital-first culture and providing digital leadership across the organisation"
Jisc further education and skills strategy
Taken from recent work conducted by Jisc in collaboration with Universities UK, Advance HE, Emerge Education and other sector organisations, these statements highlight the need for, and importance of, digital leadership within an organisation. The digital leaders programme will give you the tools and confidence to develop different, more flexible ways of delivering teaching and learning.

- Invest in your personal and professional development to keep your skills and knowledge current

- Discover and reflect on how digital technology is changing the way your organisation operates – creating new leadership challenges and strategic opportunities
