Who should attend

This programme is open to senior policymakers in government in low- and middle-income countries who are committed to digital transformation and who are in positions to implement change. Prospective participants would be senior officials (for example head of department, deputy head of department), ministers, deputy ministers, secretary/director generals, or senior advisors to heads of state/government.

Digital transformation affects the whole of a country, and so we are seeking participation from a range of areas of government, such as education, IT and communications technology, finance, planning, or revenue.

About the course

Digital technologies are transforming the world. Digital transformation brings opportunities for low- and middle-income countries to build new industries, improve markets, enhance people’s lives, and deliver better services.

One such service is education. Digital technologies have the potential to improve learning and teaching and to reform educational processes. In a global economy increasingly driven by information and innovation, public investments in education technology become key for improving human capital, boosting labour productivity, and enhancing the competitive advantage of nations.

But without well-informed governance and the right broader enabling environment for government-wide digital transformation, education technologies can engender new forms of exclusion, aggravate educational inequalities, and further erode trust in government.

Governing Digital Transformation: Improving Outcomes in Education Systems equips policymakers in developing countries to devise and lead strategies that turn digital disruption into an opportunity for development – with a particular focus on technology in education (EdTech).

In this programme, participants will develop a strong understanding of the complexities of digital transformation, enabling them to balance trade-offs posed by digital technologies, manage conflicting interests among diverse stakeholders, and design relevant regulatory frameworks for improved educational outcomes and successful EdTech reform.

The programme combines the expertise of world-leading scholars and practitioners with extensive opportunities for participants to learn from their global peers, share their own experience, explore solutions to their specific policy challenges, and further build their network.

On completion of the programme, participants will be equipped with the knowledge, tools, and skills needed to play a leading role in their countries’ digital transformation processes and EdTech governance. Equally, participants will learn about the problems that can arise, and how to anticipate and prevent digital transformation failures.
