An event that serves as a nexus for leaders of universities, professional services, researchers, and academic experts!

Invitation to register for participation in ongoing e-learning projects, consultants, and evaluation research, conducted through a cross-cultural learning approach with colleagues in Vietnam.

We are pleased to welcome you to the first workshop organized in the UK as part of the Digi:Đổi Consortium project, sponsored by the British Council's Global Partnering Program, marking 30 years of cooperative and developmental relationships in Vietnam.

The Digi:Đổi Consortium aims to create a digital transformation center that is forward-looking, built on the principles of prosperity, integration, and greenhouse gas reduction.

The project provides collaborative solutions, creating opportunities for training, consulting, and networking to enhance the digital transformation system in higher education in Vietnam and the UK.

The workshop will share ideas and practical models of digital transformation to encourage participation in the project from leaders, professional service specialists, and academic researchers, encouraging collaboration in the stages of the digital transformation process, and co-developing projects and advisory programs. (For Vietnamese registration, please visit Digi:DoiVietnamese).

With the vision of the Digi: Change Consortium, we aim to connect partners from both the UK and Vietnam to build innovative digital experiences for students. The workshop is organized to explore ideas and the feasibility of this collaboration in the future. You, as decision-makers, will determine the content and activities that you are interested in, to be implemented during the project period (project execution stage from 2023-2024).
