The nominating institution University of Edinburgh on the project:

Resilient digital education futures are often assumed to be driven by the imaginaries of AI, personalisation and automation, but are in fact far more dependent on the creativity and conviction of faculty and students. This project showed how research can help university communities develop their own visions for the future of education, based on shared values rather than techno-determinism. It did the groundwork for a new kind of digital education post COVID-19.
