In order to discuss innovative and transferable strategic approaches on different levels and especially across and beyond borders, HFD and DAAD jointly host this international conference with a focus on strategies for teaching and learning and (international) cooperation in the digital age. The conference will offer a variety of contents and formats which aim at providing new insights and orientation to higher education institutions and other stakeholders on strategies for transforming higher education in a digital age.
The main target groups of the conference are HEI Leaders, higher education representatives involved in strategy development or in projects on digitalisation and/or internationalisation, representatives from projects in the field of the main topics of the conference as well as (inter-)national experts.
