Education and Research 4.0 - a digital transformation of higher education supercharged by the pandemic - a view from the UK

Key new technologies that lie behind the fourth industrial revolution have the potential to fundamentally change the way we teach and learn. They are already starting to change the way we research. At Jisc we formed and promoted our visions of Education 4.0 and Research 4.0 to show the potential of what was possible and thus become drivers for change to 2030 and beyond. When the pandemic hit last year and all UK universities and colleges went online in a matter of days, we found ourselves on an accelerated path towards the very futures we had imagined.

This presentation will explain those visions and will look at what has happened, and is happening to teaching in the UK sector in response to the pandemic.

Jisc’s vision is for the UK to be the most digitally advanced education and research nation in the world. At its heart is the super-fast national research and education network, Janet, with built-in cyber security protection. Jisc also provides technology solutions for its members (colleges, universities and research centres) and customers (public sector bodies), helps members save time and money by negotiating sector-wide deals and provides advice and practical assistance on digital technology. Jisc is funded by the UK higher and further education and research funding bodies and member institutions.

Setting the scene for European digital student service infrastructure

The European Student Card Initiative is a flagship policy initiative of the European Commission that aims to digitise and streamline the administration of the student mobility across the continent; the Initiative combines elements of various EU funded projects such as Erasmus without Paper, Online Learning Agreement, Erasmus+ App and MyAcademicID. Over the years these tools have garnered a user base of several thousands of higher education institutions.

2021 marks the year that exchange of interoperable data will be gradually rolled-out at the heart of the new Erasmus+ programme a greater emphasis is being put on the integration and articulation of the infrastructure projects noted above, which are combining their strengths to create the European Digital Student Service Infrastructure (EDSSI). The EDSSI is an important step towards the creation of a Digital Service Infrastructure in the domain of higher education and student mobility, with a focus on ensuring secure and seamless authentication. The presentation will thus explore the architectural challenges the EDSSI is looking to tackle and anticipate some of the results its project team is working towards.
