Eduhub days 2017


FullSizeRenderOn February 9 and 10, USI hosted the 9th edition of the eduhub days, the annual meeting of the Swiss eLearning community.

The focus of this year was on e-Assessment; about 140 participants coming from all Swiss Higher Education Institutions attended the meeting.

On Thursday morning, J√ľrgen Handke¬†(Philipps-Marburg University, Germany) gave his keynote speech about education in the 21st century, while on Friday morning Geoffrey Crisp¬†(University of New South Wales, Australia) talked about assessment, with and without the support of digital technologies.

The eduhub days 2017 have been enriched by the intervention of several contributions coming from the Swiss eLearning community: 28 ateliers have been proposed, in 21 different slots.

The recordings and the slides presented in the keynote speeches and in the other plenary sessions, as well as the photo gallery and the Twitter pics of the event are available on the web page of the eduhub days 2017: https://www.eduhub.ch/events/eduhub-days/eduhub-days-2017.
