Hochschulforum Digitalisierung (German Forum for Higher Education in the Digital Age) is an independent national platform for the promotion of digital learning and teaching in German universities. From innovation in teaching and learning to questions of governance and policies, six expert groups work on different subjects along the scope of e-learning. They discuss crucial questions and develop benchmarks as well as recommendations for universities and policy makers. The Forum especially aims to increase the visibility of digital teaching and learning and to promote the open discourse on the subject.


Hochschulforum Digitalisierung is an initiative by Centrum für Hochschulentwicklung, Stifterverband für die Deutsche Wissenschaft and the German Rectors’ Conference. It is financed by Germany’s federal ministry of education and research and closely cooperates with representatives of the federal states.
