Ukrainian-Bavarian Conference on Digital Education on 23 – 24 June 2022 in Bayreuth and online

BAYHOST, the Center for Teaching and Learning in Higher Education (FBZHL) at the University of Bayreuth and the Office of the Free State of Bavaria in Ukraine are organizing the “Ukrainian-Bavarian Conference on Digital Education” from June 23-24, 2022, on-site in Bayreuth and streamed online. The conference aims to transfer knowledge about the use of digital tools and concepts in education and enables an exchange of experiences.

The University of Bayreuth supports the German-Ukrainian exchange on the digitization of teaching-learning processes with two projects. The DAAD-funded Learnopolis+ project is working with partners in Lviv, Ternopil, and Vinnytsia (Donetsk) to develop Massive Open Online Courses for the qualification of university teachers. Under the framework of UTTERLY (Erasmus+ KA2), competence standards, curricula, and certification processes in this area are established.

At the conference, the scholarship holders of the Free State of Bavaria from Eastern Europe will tell about their experience with online education in Bavaria and their home countries during the pandemic. On the second day, the participants will join small and interactive working groups where they will share their experience with digital education and learn from each other. The topics will be based on suggestions made by the participants themselves: benefit from the knowledge of your colleagues and share your experience with them!
