Upcoming community activities on digital education

Discover new opportunities to enhance your digital education skills, competences, and knowledge on the European Digital Education Hub.

Community workshops and working groups

The next community workshop will be held in Brussels on 27 and 28 October 2022. Community members and expert speakers will discuss the topic of ‘Digital Education in Times of Crises: Emergency Education Enablers’. Policy recommendations on this topic will be developed by the workshop participants.

Registration for the workshop has been closed, but community members are very welcome to engage in the online preparatory discussion.

A call for application for the third Community Workshop in Berlin on 22 and 23 November 2022 will open soon. In the workshop, the participants will discuss and work on the topic of ‘An Interoperable International Digital Ecosystem for Education’.

The ultimate goal of the workshop is to develop a blueprint for a digital ecosystem. Analysing existing solutions is an essential step towards that goal.

After the workshop, all Hub members will further have the opportunity to join a dedicated online Working Group (or ‘Squad’) on this topic from the end of November 2022 to January 2023.
