General Information

We invite all educators, international office managers, university administrators and learning technologists across the globe to share their education innovations. Join us for a one-day conference held in the Cologne-Bonn region on our H-BRS campus in Sankt Augustin, Germany to discuss how merging digital and international activities can benefit the global engagement among higher education institutions around the world. The conference is sponsored by the Stiftung Innovation in der Hochschullehre

The hybrid and in-person conference brings together a community involved in developing new internationalisation formats that include innovative digital learning scenarios that support global digital learning. The event will showcase different formats of global digital collaboration such as virtual or hybrid exchanges, digital summer schools and other formats conducted online in synchronous and asynchronous virtual environments. It also brings together administrators, elearning, and IT experts to find technical and secure solutions in connecting higher education institutions

There will be opportunities to discuss how internationalisation and digitalisation strategies can be transformed to offer more inclusive and diverse opportunities than traditional mobility programs have accomplished in the past. The conference is open to all disciplines and interdisciplinary contributions are most welcome. We will offer online contributions to be streamed during the hybrid event for university partners in different time zones. We want to expand the opportunities of virtual mobility for all students. We encourage students to submit a contribution by showcasing their experiences in virtual mobility schemes. 

We are looking foward to welcoming you at Hochschule Bonn-Rhein-Sieg University of Applied Sciences and are looking forward to your conference contribution. 

Information on your keynote speakers will follow soon!
