British University Vietnam (BUV) is at the forefront of a new initiative designed to advance the digital capacities of higher education institutions in Vietnam. Named “SOARing to Successful Digital Transformation in Vietnamese Universities” this undertaking represents a collaborative effort between BUV, Bournemouth University in the UK, and other distinguished Vietnamese educational institutions, namely the University of Economics Ho Chi Minh City and Tra Vinh University. The project is generously supported by the British Council through the Going Global Partnerships fund.
The collaboration utilises the SOAR (Strengths, Opportunities, Aspirations, Results) strategic planning approach to act as a catalyst for institutional change. Spanning a period of two years, the project will yield a range of impactful deliverables. These include a framework for digital transformation, aptly named “SOARing to Digital Transformation,” and a self-assessment tool designed to gauge an institution’s readiness for such a transformation.
Additional outcomes comprise an exploratory review of digital innovation possibilities, a virtual vision board focused on student-centric learning, and a flexible digital transformation roadmap adaptable to the needs of each participating institution. A wealth of resources, such as training materials and multimedia case studies, will also be generated and disseminated.
Taking a leadership role in this pioneering venture, BUV is eager to both impart its domain expertise and benefit from the insights of its UK partners to craft customised solutions for Vietnam’s educational landscape. The project aims to ignite innovation in the sector through the creation of a Digital Transformation Hub and a strategic roadmap to support Vietnamese universities in their journey of technological development.
Acting as a conduit between the UK and Vietnam in this collaborative effort, BUV is committed to the exchange of best practices, the fortification of international partnerships, and the fast-tracking of technology-driven, student-focused education across Vietnam.
