The joint project Digital Higher Education in Saxony results from a cooperation between the Higher Education Didactic Center Saxony (HDS) and the e-Learning Working Group (AKeL) of the Saxony Rectors' Conference. The goal of the project is to implement the state-wide digitization strategy for higher education teaching and thus to support and advance the transformation of studying and teaching in the context of digitization in accordance with the strategies of the participating partner universities (see below). General information on the joint project can be found on the HDS website.
For the transfer of knowledge and good practice between the universities, not only existing structures, networks and competences of the AKeL and the HDS are used, but also a network of university and media didactic actors is built up locally. The following universities and colleges are in the network:
At the Zittau/Görlitz University of Applied Sciences, Digital Higher Education is affiliated with the Center for Knowledge Transfer and Education.
The project runs from 01.07.2019 to 31.12.2023 and is financed with a total volume of € 3.7 million by the Saxon State Ministry for Science and the Arts.
