Moving Target Digitalisation 2022: Increasing the Impact of Internationalisation in Higher Education

November 30th – December 2nd 2022 in Berlin and virtually

Moving Target 2020 Paneldiscussion

Digitalisation is profoundly altering higher education: collaboration across borders and new forms of mobility offer diverse opportunities in a globally networked world. The DAAD actively promotes digital internationalisation through its funding activities and the realisation of research and development projects: the spectrum of topics ranges from digital preparatory programmes to digital credentials. At the second edition of the conference "Moving Target Digitalisation: Increasing the Impact of Internationalisation in Higher Education", we will present project outcomes and examine related initiatives and projects at home and abroad. How can the effects of internationalisation through digitalisation, new digital tools and formats be captured in the future? What challenges emerge in the context of cross-border collaborations, new mobility patterns and flexible learning paths?

Higher education institutions have experienced a digitalisation surge in the past two years, which has led to changes in teaching, research, and university administration. Digital educational technologies offer the possibility of both advancing internationalisation and opening diverse forms of participation and mobility. At the same time, questions remain about the limits of these technologies, for example with regard to open educational practice, digital exclusion or the self-understanding of universities.

The biannual conference "Moving Target Digitalisation" invites participants to address these questions with a thematic-modular concept and by addressing expert communities. Participants of #movingtarget2022 will discuss the effects of digitalisation on the internationalisation of higher education and on academic exchange in four subject areas:

  • Linking Digital Education Services: Digital Study Preparation, Support and Resources
  • Virtual Exchange and Blended Mobility
  • European Strategies for Digital Education
  • Digital Credentials and Trust Networks – provided by DiBiHo
