Digital learning in Nordic higher education before and after Covid-19: latest trends and future prospects

Zoom webinar convened by Vito Laterza, Cathrine Tømte, Rómulo Pinheiro & Aleksandar Avramovic.

Hosted by the Centre for Digital Transformation (CeDiT), University of Agder. 

In this webinar, scholars from Denmark, Norway and Sweden doing cutting-edge research on digitalisation of teaching and learning in Nordic higher education will debate current practices and future prospects, exploring the impact of Covid-19 and with an eye to the long-term implications of the rapid changes we have experienced in the past few months.

The format is centred around small presentations and two panels, which will also engage with questions from the virtual floor.

The webinar also marks the launch of the recently published special issue “Digital transformations with ‘Nordic characteristics’? Latest trends in the digitalisation of teaching and learning in Nordic higher education”, published by the Nordic Journal of Digital Literacy in December 2020.
