Digital Technologies in Education: local and global insights into digital initiatives in higher education

Friday 24.10.2014
13:00-14:00
Auditorio Lugano Campus

The fast development of digital technologies in recent years is offering new possibilities to reinvent higher education. Alternative forms of interaction are progressively complementing and enriching face-to-face forms of teaching and learning. At the same time, by making courses accessible to millions of students worldwide, the emergence of e-Learning and the growth of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) is reducing geographic distance while expanding the influence of major universities.

What are the possibilities and challenges brought by digital technologies in higher education? How are they reshaping the academic landscape worldwide? Is it hype or revolution? We invite you to join the debate and share local and global insights into digital initiatives in higher education.
