Summary

Digitalisation is an issue of growing importance at all higher education institutions (HEIs). It is often developed and driven bottom-up, i.e. by individuals and parts of the institution. For institutional leadership, it may be difficult to assess the diversity of needs, to get an overview on what is in place, and to undertake strategic planning accordingly.
The project aims at creating the DIGI-HE, a strategic reflection tool on digitalisation at European higher education institutions, by adapting the SELFIE tool to the needs of the higher education, in order to support HEsI in developing strategic approaches for digitalisation. The DIGI-HE will put an emphasis on self-review and self-reflection, and measures for strategic institutional development. This will enable the institutional leadership to explore perceptions and perspectives of different members across the institution (leadership, teachers, researchers, administrative staff, technical and IT staff, and students).
The outcomes can inform and support intra-institutional strategic dialogue and collaboration processes, thus contributing to mainstream approaches, improving support and more transparent structures for digitalisation, and increasing the proactive participation of staff and students. The DIGI-HE could also be used as a basis for interinstitutional cooperation and benchmarking, and in this regard could serve networks and associations of HEIs, and could contribute to the development of national approaches, by map state of play and needs for digitalisation.
