StrategyHack: Hacking Institutional Strategies for Rapidly Deployed Digital Education

Strengthening capacities of mid-level institutional leaders in higher education

The StrategyHack project intends to strengthen the capacities of mid-level institutional leaders in higher education to promote more sustainable models of digital education, focusing on accelerating the digital transformation within higher education whilst promoting and nourishing high quality personalised digital environments.

StrategyHack is an initiative built on the experience gained in the EduHack project and is supported by the Erasmus + Programme of the European Union.  This project is run by Politecnico di Torino – POLITO , Universidad Internacional de La Rioja – UNIR , Coventry University, Knowledge Innovation Centre – KIC,  Association Europeenne D’institutions Del’enseignement Superieur – EURASHE and, Media and Learning Association – MEDEA.

Therefore, StrategyHack supports the priorities of the European Commission’s Digital Education Action Plan and focuses on capacity building on mid-level institutional leaders since a resilient transformation requires strengthening the connecting tissue between the high-level management strategy level and the digital-pedagogy level which these personnel provide. We intend to:

  • accelerate digital transformation of staff, programmes and institutional processes within Higher Education.
  • promote and nourish high quality self-directed personalised learning environments with a strong digital component.
  • lock in gains made to perceptions of digital learning during the COVID crisis and using these to promote more sustainable models of digital education.
