The Germany Universities’ ZKI event kicks off in Ulm this week.
The Digitization of Teaching
During this Monday to Wednesday, the conference will work around the theme of “Digitization of teaching” with a variety of presentations and discussion from different perspectives. Various initiatives in the field of digitization of Education (such as Germany’s National IT Summit 2016 “Digital Education”) have already identified that this subject is being taken especially seriously, especially in Germany. Against this background, the conference provides a platform for exchange and discussion on the tasks and services of university infrastructure (data centers, media centers, libraries) in the implementation of location-based digitization concepts.
Containment of Cost
Largely as a result of external forces and institutional strategic priorities, the transformation of higher education information technology
is now happening faster than ever before. Institutional priorities, such as the critical containment of costs and achieving demonstrable
improvements are now starting to become a reality.
On Tuesday, 13 September at this ZKI event, the focus is on technology and services, including the implementation of computer-based tests
and online exams. This subject is also explored from a legal and strategic aspect. The experiences of universities which already hold online exams will be brought to the fore.
