Title: Digital transformation - scaling up quality?

Date: Thursday, 29 October 2020

Time: 14:00 - 16:00 CET

The autumn is here. We are back to schools, university classes, and back to (home) offices. As we are collecting lessons learned from emergency distance education, we are also looking on how to prepare for other new potential emergency situations, as well as trying to use the recent experience and drive our education institutions further into meaningful digital world(s).

What has changed since spring/summer? Do we have a strategic approach to digital transformation now and if yes, how does it look?

In this TF-EDU session we want to address strategic questions, among others:

    • What are the challenges for different timescales and horizons? (immediate - 2020/21; medium - 2021/22; long - 2030)?
    • What does the ‘new normal’ look like and how do we get there?
    • What are the synergies and differences through higher and further education, and schools?
    • What is the value of international collaboration in this space?

The first hour of the meeting is dedicated to strategic updates of several national approaches to distance education and related key challenges, including digital assessment. In the second hour Esther Wilkinson (Jisc) and Tomi Dolenc (ARNES) will facilitate the discussion between participants on the above questions. Come join us and make this conversation important!
