Kickoff for the German Hochschulforum Digitalisierung

I designed and moderated the kickoff meeting for the German Hochschulforum Digitalisierung by the Stifterverband, a think tank consisting of seventy experts that investigates the potential of digitization for German university education.

Our most important message in this workshop was that the participants should not to loose the connection to the users they are working for. So we invited a whole crowd of students in order for the teams of experts to get first-hand insights into the academic and digital life of current university “customers”. In six topic workstreams, the team then designed what they expect the learning landscape of the future to look like.

This is a fun photo of me sneaking out of the group picture:
