Join the IAU-UOC Innovative Education for Unshaped Futures (IE4UF) series to explore the digital transformation of higher education

The International Association of Universities (IAU) and Universitat Oberta de Catalunya (UOC) announce the launch of a new joint series – the Innovative Education for Unshaped Futures (IE4UF)!

The pandemic has accelerated digital transformation of higher education. After a year of adapting to the sudden disruption of higher education and pivoting operations to increasingly rely on digital technologies in higher education, the new constant is uncertainty and a need for resilience to respond to fast changing environment. Within this context, the International Association of Universities (IAU) and UOC (Universitat Oberta de Catalunya) have partnered to develop a series to explore some of the changes we are currently observing in higher education under the title Innovative Education for Unshaped Futures (IE4UF).

The series is divided into 6 chapters of one hour exploring different levels of change and moving from broader topics to more specific areas in the second part of the series. Each chapter includes perspectives from an online and a campus-based university and the full programme is available here. The series is open to all and the recordings will be made available online after the session.

The first chapter – Return to Campus: Making sense of (innovative) hybrid teaching and learning – is scheduled for June 10, 2021.

The Second chapter – Assessment practices in hybrid and online HE scenarios – is scheduled for June 22, 2021.

The Third chapter –  Leadership for Digital Education: Shortcuts and pitfalls – is scheduled for July 1, 2021. 

The detailed information about this initiative and all the scheduled Chapters is available here.
