Add event to calendar



The digitisation of university teaching has developed a strong dynamic in the last two years. We would like to look into the future with the Teaching Futures Day.

  • What opportunities, possibilities and potentials are there for the universities?
  • Can digitalisation processes make higher education teaching fairer, more open, more efficient and more international?
  • How can we implement and contribute to this?
  • What experience have we gained and how can we use it for the future?
  • What are the challenges of digitalisation?

We want to provide answers, open a space for discussion and in the process set new impulses for our own practice.
