EADTU Conference OOFHEC2017

EADTU is going to organise the conference "HIGHER EDUCATION FOR THE FUTURE: accelerating and strengthening innovation" on 25-27 of October, 2017. Over the past years, universities have intensified a deeper transformation of teaching and learning in higher education, based on e-learning and online education. New modes of teaching and learning create new opportunities for enhancing the quality of the learning experience for on campus students, for reaching out to new target groups off campus and for offering freely accessible open education through the internet (OERs, MOOCs). They support the quality, visibility and reputation of the institution.

2. Open education and widening participation 

3. Research and innovation for new modes of teaching and learning
