There are very few people better placed to provide an overarching view of how universities across Europe are adapting to the digital economy than Lesley Wilson. She is Secretary General of the European Universities Association, and was a keynote speaker at the EDEN 25th Anniversary Conference in Budapest.
During the conference we sat down to discuss her work. I wanted to find out her views on a host of digital learning strategies, including the digitisation of content, open academic publishing and the integration of technology into higher education. What needs to be done next to ensure a successful future for technology supported learning? What do undergraduates need in a richly technological age? What will be the future of academic publishing? How effective are digital repositories? These and other questions feature in the interview.
