Digivisio 2030 is a joint effort of Finnish institutions of higher education aimed at shaping the future of learning. The first one and a half years of the programme have progressed from the initial launch of programme activities to the point where concrete work can begin on building the first Digivisio services.
Even though a fair amount of Digivisio work has already been done, the project may not be familiar to everyone in the higher education community. Digivisio 2030 may have seemed as somewhat remote from actual teaching and research work, for example, and perhaps the reforms being introduced by the programme are still rather difficult to grasp. For this reason, we are launching a roadshow series together with institutions of higher education. We will be touring around almost all the 38 Finnish higher education institutions to get to know people and engage in dialogue.
“Instead of looking on from the sidelines, higher education institutions have actively started to build the future of learning for themselves. From the perspective of the Digivisio objectives, it is essential that the project does not remain a remote concept to anyone in the higher education community, but rather that there is ownership and a sense of the opportunity to create new things. Digivisio will be introducing a wide range of changes in the everyday lives of higher education institutions, so it is important to have everyone on board,” summarises Communications Manager Jonna Piiroinen, who was involved in planning the roadshow.
The roadshow tour, which will begin in the autumn, is aimed at raising awareness in higher education communities of the programme’s objectives and plans as well as offering opportunities for discussion and dialogue. The topics covered in the events will include the objectives of Digivisio, its vision for the future, and the services being developed in the project. Participants will have the option of either attending in person or participating online.
