This month’s HEInnovate webinar “National and institutional approaches of using digital tools to stimulate learning and professionalisation among higher education teachers” will take place on Thursday 28th April 2022 at 5pm CEST.
In this webinar, we will explore how higher education institutions use digital tools such as online platforms and other technologies facilitating collaboration to support the learning and professionalisation among teachers in higher education. We will also discuss how national education agencies and dedicated programmes can support institutions in developing and adapting some of these tools.
The webinar will be moderated by Ben Jongbloed and Andrea Kottmann from the Centre for Higher Education Policy Studies, and engage four experts:
