About the Digital Strategy

Digital adoption continues to drive substantial, ongoing, and quickening shifts in how people work and communicate. The implications for the University’s core activities are breathtaking in scale and scope. Transformational change of teaching pedagogies, research disciplines, engagement paradigms, and ways of working are all driven by digital adoption.

There is an urgency for the University to embrace these changes wholeheartedly. These factors are recognised by and shape our Digital Strategy.

Taumata Teitei, the University of Auckland Vision 2030 and Strategic Plan 2025, casts an ambitious agenda for the future, grounded in principles of te ao Māori and our shared values. A strong thread of humanism and authentic, vital connections between people and communities runs through Taumata Teitei.

The University of Auckland Digital Strategy 2025 guides the whole University in using digital techniques and practices to achieve the vision and goals of Taumata Teitei, working through the Waipapa Framework.

Located in Tāmaki Makaurau and standing in Aotearoa New Zealand and the Pacific, the distinctiveness of the University of Auckland, Waipapa Taumata Rau, must be as visible, acknowledged, and respected in our digital presence as it will be in our physical estate.

Digital capabilities for research and innovation, learning and teaching, and partnerships and engagement are required for the University to be distinctive, customer-experience focused, and data-driven. More mature digital capabilities contribute directly to stronger research impacts, stronger learning outcomes, and deeper partnerships and engagement. Digital techniques will advance sharing, curation, and preservation of our distinctive content and valuable collections, promoting appropriate open access.

In a sustainable, ethical, and informed context, we emphasise digital capabilities the University must develop to design and deliver experiences that empower and enable our  constituents, cohorts, and communities to connect, thrive, and succeed.
