EUA members contribute to digitalisation in Germany and the Netherlands
02 December 2016
The Hochschulforum Digitalisierung wrapped up with a large conference on 1 December 2016 in Berlin, Germany. The three-year project brought German and international experts and practitioners together to discuss and collaborate on the issue of sharing and developing approaches to digital learning.
Hochschulforum Digitalisierung is an initiative by Centrum für Hochschulentwicklung, Stifterverband für die Deutsche Wissenschaft and the German Rectors’ Conference (HRK), an EUA member, and financed by Germany’s federal ministry of education. The extensive report “The Digital Turn” (in German only) is available here.
Digitalisation is also one of the key topics for Dutch universities and the Dutch Rectors’ Conference (VSNU), also an EUA member. VSNU recently published a paper that looks into the wider impact of digitalisation on society. The paper, “The Digital Society,” sets the start for a collective reflection among the Dutch universities on how to address this impact. The paper (in Dutch and English) is available here.
