Envisioning Teaching and Learning as a Common Task:

Together – Cooperative - Integrative

From 10 to 13 March 2020, Freie Universität Berlin will host the 49th Annual Conference of the German Association for Educational Development (dghd).*

The quality of teaching and learning in higher education in Germany is at the centre of political discussion as rarely (ever) before. In June 2019, the German Government and the Länder have jointly created the financial and organizational framework for the development of higher education in Germany until 2030.

The dghd Annual Conference 2020 aims to sharpen the view of higher education as a joint enterprise for teaching staff, students, departments, educational developers, administration, academic leaders, institutions, politics and society. We want to present and discuss perspectives for a participatory, cooperative and integrative design of higher education. In the context of ensuring and enhancing the quality of teaching and learning in higher education, we want to focus on types of cooperation (between individuals, departments or institutions) which could provide new impulses for the development of teaching and learning in higher education.

We welcome contributions (short presentations, discourse workshops, workshops and poster presentations) in three thematic fields:

1)      CONNECTIONS BETWEEN RESEARCH AND PRACTICE IN EDUCATIONAL DEVELOPMENT

2)      EDUCATIONAL DEVELOPMENT AND THE ACADEMIC DISCIPLINES - AN INTENSE RELATIONSHIP?

3)      HIGHER EDUCATION INSTITUTIONS AS LEARNING ORGANIZATIONS - POSSIBILITIES FOR COOPERATION

We invite everybody involved or interested in enhancing and developing the quality of teaching and learning in higher education to help us shape the conference. In addition to colleagues from the fields of higher education research and educational development and quality assurance, we also invite educational researchers from related disciplines, teachers and students interested in and engaged with the development of teaching and learning to share their insights with us.
