International Forum for University Presidents on ICT Education
Hosted by The University of the South Pacific

Days until the Conference


Leadership in a Digital World

Held at Grand Pacific Hotel Suva Fiji 10 13 October 2017

Higher education institutions worldwide make extensive use of digital technologies for their core business of education and knowledge creation.  In addition to their educational responsibilities, these institutions also have a crucial, broader, role; contributing to the public good for the societies, nations, and regions they serve.  As a consequence, in addition to being at the forefront of the digital revolution by virtue of contributing to disciplines such as computer sciences and software engineering, institutions need to provide leadership more broadly, working with governments and stakeholders to ensure nations benefit from the enormous potential of digital technologies in innovation and economic and social development.

At this forum, Vice-Chancellors and Presidents from leading higher education institutions, in their role as thought leaders, share their experiences on the use of digital technologies in education within their institutions, and describe how their institutions support their constituencies in the use of digital technologies to improve economic and social wellbeing at the national and regional levels. 

After the 2016 forum, President NING Bin and WANG Yajie, Party Secretary of Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications, held talks with each other and held the Flag Handover Ceremony. On behalf of the Forum Committee, President NING Bin handed it over to Prof Richard Coll Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Learning, Teaching & Student Services) and wished the next forum a complete success.
