re-thinking global exchange in higher education

The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) invites you to a two-day conference in the context of the German Presidency of the European Council:

The hybrid conference format builds a bridge across the gap between physical and virtual space. We would be honoured to welcome you as one of our remote contributors. Together we would like to discuss the present and future of global exchange in higher education.

We are looking for contributions that engage with, challenge and re-think International Collaboration, Mobility and Knowledge Transfer in the light of digital transformation. Selected papers will be published as part of the Conference Proceedings.

Contributions should address one of the following target areas, reflecting on internationalisation viewed through the lens of digitalisation:

  1. Collaboration, Cooperation and Partnerships
  2. Mobility and Exchange: Physical – Blended – Virtual
  3. Administrating Internationalisation Digitally: Data Ecosystems and Data Sovereignty
  4. Attractiveness of HEI in a Global Knowledge Society
  5. Knowledge Transfer, ‘Third Mission’ and Open Education

You are invited to pick the format that suits your contribution: video presentation (pre-produced), conference poster, live demo, live panel discussion or workshop. You have further ideas for virtual presentations or interactive formats, such as a PechaKucha or a barcamp session? Feel free to introduce them!

Please refer to our proposal guideline (PDF) for more information on each format and use our submission template.

Submission deadline: August 1st 2020

We kindly ask you to send in your submission or raise further questions to:

Further information is available on our conference webpage in English or German.

We are looking forward to your contributions and to (re-)thinking global exchange together with you!

Kind regards,
