The world is changing of the 4th Industrial Revolution and the digital era, it is urgent to apply digital transformation in education. Innovating teaching and learning methods in the digital environment based on enhancing self-learning capacity of learners is essential to achieve digital transformation effectively in education and training. This study has proposed three solutions for self-study based teaching method in the digital environment in higher training, especiall in technical universities: (1) experimental self-study in the digital environment, (2) innovating teaching method of self-study in the digital environment, (3) innovating the self-study teching method to improve memory capacity  in the digital environment.

An objective of this study to clarify the term "teaching and learning in the digital environment". The research results to create a premise for further research, building a theoretical basis on how to teach self-study in a specific university training discipline (example for Electrical Engineering) to illustrate in the digital environment and implementing sample lesson plans and specific lectures to develop self-study competency of the students in a digital environment, achieving higher educational and training efficiency, and meeting current digital transformation requirements
