Assistant Professor, Department of Management Studies Middle East College, Al Rusayl, Muscat, Oman
Balancing the skills through digital transformation will help increase the graduates’ employability. This study explored the digital transformation in the Sultanate of Oman by looking at the different aspects, such as how this transformation has affected the way the educators conducted their lessons and, at the same time, how students learned from the shared learning materials. Based on the gathered literature, digital transformation is essential to education for various reasons, such as enabling collaboration and personalized learning. From the global and Omani perspectives on teaching and learning methodologies, it shows similarities in conducting online and hybrid classes, submitting students’ output, and assessing the students’ academic success. The recommendation focuses on continuing current strategies and provides additional support for students facing challenges; It is also recommended to create a venue or platform which will assess the educator’s technology skills to ensure their readiness for the challenges of the digital transformation. The government and private education institutions should continually enhance the technology infrastructure requirement of this ongoing digital transformation to ensure that Oman will offer the best in the world and to continually offer sustainable knowledge for society through improved technology infrastructure
Key words: digital transformation / skills in digital transformation / employability skills
