eduhub days 2021

Shaping the future of teaching and learning in higher education

27. October 2020, Nathalie Roth, SWITCH

Registration and call for proposal are open!

The eduhub days 2021 will take place on February 9 and 10, 2021, at the University of Lausanne in Switzerland. They are organised as a hybrid event, which means that participation is possible on-site in Lausanne as well as online. However, due to the current situation, the eduhub days 2021 might switch to a complete online setting. The decision, if the eduhub days 2021 will take place in Lausanne or completely online will be taken mid-January 2021.

The eduhub days 2021 are in the sign of shaping the future of teaching and learning in higher education. The current COVID-19 crisis has acted as a huge accelerator for digitalisation in the Swiss academic landscape. With the nationwide lockdown, Swiss Higher Education Institutions had to switch to remote teaching within just a few days, and the challenge to set up quick and stable solutions for this setting was tremendous. So far, so good… But what about teaching and learning in higher education after COVID-19? How will we teach in five years?

Participants can either share their experiences and best practices in a BarCamp or parallel session "Challenges and innovation", which will be divided into four tracks: "Hybrid teaching and learning", "e-Colllaboration", "e-Assessment" and "Tools".

There is also a competition: Participants can share their biggest fail in digital teaching during the COVID-19 year and their lessons learned. The winner of the best presented fail will be awarded.
