As a centre of innovation and competence, Hochschulforum Digitalisierung (German Forum for Higher Education in the Digital Age) informs, advises and connects higher education institutions and policy makers on the path towards education in the digital age.
Our fields of action
Peer-to-peer strategy consulting
Each year, HFD offers individualised peer-to-peer consulting services to six higher education institutions concerning their institutional strategy for the digital age. In addition, the Forum conducts studies and develops overarching strategies for HEIs.
Network for higher education teaching
In its network for higher education teaching, HFD connects university teachers, higher education staff and students. It is designed to promote exchanges across disciplines and HEIs and to build competence in the field of digital teaching and learning.
Each year, HFD forms three working groups to address current issues and challenges and to develop solutions for higher education practice. The findings of the working groups are made available to the public through studies, guidelines and other publications.
Call for experts
HFD is constantly looking for experts in digital teaching and learning to support its work. Experts interested in becoming involved in the Forum are invited to apply via the Call for Experts on the HFD website.
