For the first time ever, the LERU thematic group on digital education is organising a blended conference: the Digital Higher Education Summit. To disseminate knowledge of and experiences with the use of digital solutions in teaching as widely as possible, the online part of the conference will be open to everyone. The online conference will run from the 1st until the 29th of November 2018.

Do you want to share and learn about the latest ideas and practical solutions in digital education? See how digital approaches have elevated blended and online education? Sign up for the free online activities about these and many other topics at the Digital Higher Education Summit, a blended LERU conference. 

The blended conference comprises a ‘virtual’ online pre-conference and a face-to-face  event in Utrecht. The on-campus conference in Utrecht, the Netherlands is an invitation-only event. The online conference is open to everyone. Many on-campus events will carry on in the same vein as the online activities. The Blended Conference starts online on November 1st, four weeks before (some of) the participants convene in Utrecht.

The League of European Research Universities (LERU) is a prominent advocate for the promotion of basic research at European research universities. The LERU theme group on digital education is organising this first-ever blended conference to broadly disseminate knowledge of and experiences with digital teaching solutions. The blended approach will give a large group of teachers and staff members the opportunity to build networks and hear about the latest developments from of the different task groups and create new networks.
