HFDcon 2022 Blendend University – What’s coming, what’s staying?

The Hochschulforum Digitalisierung invited students, teachers and university administrators on June 30, 2022: Finally back in presence and with a promising program, the HFD community and all interested parties from the higher education environment came together to discuss the topic of “Blended University”. Read here the thesis paper University Teaching 2025, which was developed cooperatively in the run-up to and at the event, and the resulting HFD discussion paper Zukunftsbild Hochschullehre 2025.

Future image of university teaching

How do we best implement teaching after the corona semesters, how much online and how much presence can there be? What does the digitization push mean for the university as a place of teaching and learning, and what is the role of university administrators when teaching changes its original form? We will explore these and other questions on June 30 and look forward to your assessments and an exciting exchange!

In close dialogue, we develop visions for innovative and future-oriented teaching together with community members who have registered in advance. In interactive reflection processes and exciting workshops, we highlight good experiences of online teaching and sum up the practice so far – what’s new and what remains?
