VMU participated in European Distance and E-learning Network (EDEN) Research Workshop 2022, Dubrovnik

On September 19, 2022, Vytautas Magnus university prof. dr. Airina Volungeviciene, together with PhD student Rasa Greenspon, participated in the EDEN Research Workshop 2022: Towards Smart and Inclusive Learning Ecosystem, held in Dubrovnik, Croatia.

Rasa Greenspon gave a presentation on the topic “A strategic reflection on digitalization in higher education. Developing a high-performance digital education ecosystem”. In the presentation, the DIGI-HE project deliverables, including the survey findings on digitally enhanced learning and teaching in European higher education institutions, the desk research report Developing a high performance digital education ecosystem, and the key insights from thematic peer groups, which were developed within the Erasmus+ co-funded DIGI-HE project, led by EUA (European University Associations) in cooperation with four universities, were presented.

Mostly, the presentation focused on the desk report and its findings as its relevance for higher education institutions, dealing with the digitalization of teaching and learning, is undeniable. The report provides an overview of 20 tools, used worldwide, to assess the processes of technology-enhanced teaching and learning, and digitalization in higher education institutions. The publication makes observations on the use of these tools by educational institutions for quality improvement and the development of digital skills. The report is addressed to higher education institutions, as well as policy makers, developers of similar tools and, more generally, all those seeking information on such measures.
