The Innovating Higher Education conference focuses on trends and high impact factors in global and European higher education. This year's theme is: "Higher education in the new normal: the role of online, blended and distance learning".
The COVID-19 crisis has asked many universities to switch to digital education and to reorganise their campus. In surveys of the European Commission, it turned out that in the first (semi-) lockdown period, 95,1% of the universities organised online and distance learning and 82,7% even online exams. All institutions set-up massive support for organising online lectures, tutorials and video conferencing with diverse pedagogical approaches.
Teaching staff feel this as a disruption, requiring an extreme workload to adapt to the situation. Students started to manifest for the right of having "quality education". Watching a video or following a lesson via Zoom is no longer felt as a solution as it was in the first wave.
To support high quality, inclusive education, I-HE2021 will bring together experts from the world of online, blended and distance learning who will share their good practices for higher education in the "new normal".
