Digital Transformation in Education: The what, why and how

TIM-TUHH participates in BarCamp Pitch at UNIVERSITY: FUTURE FESTIVAL 2020

Digital transformation is changing the way education takes place. Changes are comprehensive and affect the entire process of learning, teaching and auxiliary support including at home. In this session at UNIVERSITY: FUTURE FESTIVAL 2020 (“Learning, Systems and the New Normal”), we will present findings of our ongoing study on the changes that the education sector is undergoing, including their “why” and “how” aspects.

The session will begin with the presentation of the results of expert interviews by Dr. Rajnish Tiwari. The interviews have been conducted under the VISION project that has been funded by the European Commission. In an interactive setting, participants will emulate a focus group discussion and deliberate upon the results and formulate implications.

When: Tuesday, 6 October 2020, 11:45 – 13:15 CEST
