ENLIGHT Mid-Year Meeting in Groningen
Transformation - Keynote and panel discussion

The UG will host the next ENLIGHT's Mid-Year Meeting, taking place from 7-9 June 2023. Together with the delegations of the ENLIGHT partner universities we will look back on what we have achieved so far and look ahead to the next period. And in doing so, we are very pleased to welcome our new ENLIGHT partner: the University of Bern. The central theme of the meeting is: transformation. 

Join us for the keynote and panel discussion
Besides a welcome speech by Rector Cisca Wijmenga, this public morning programme will also include a keynote by Willem Jonker, President AINed, former CEO EIT Digital and a panel discussion led by UG’s Tina Kretschmer.
The panel will build on the questions posed by Prof. Willem Jonker in his keynote speech. Focus of the discussion will be how universities and more specifically European University Alliances respond to the transformation processes that are going on in society.
The panel, moderated by Tina Kretschmer from the UG, brings together representatives from the higher education sector and beyond and will consist of:

- Willem Jonker, President AINed;
- Monika Froehler, CEO of the Ban-Ki-Moon Centre, ENLIGHT External Advisor;
- David Donoghue, former Irish Ambassador to the UN, ENLIGHT External Advisor;
- Daniela Trani, Director YUFE EU University alliance, Maastricht University;
- ENLIGHT Chair/Coordinator;
- Celia Rino Pardo, Student Network, UPV/EHU

We welcome you to participate and contribute your own perspectives. Because of the limited capacity of the Aula we kindly ask you to register here if you would like to join. 

Other upcoming Events: Virtual Exchange (UG Staff)

Are you ready to take your courses to the next level through the addition of an international and/or virtual component? ENLIGHT is offering a unique opportunity to add a new dimension to your courses through a Virtual Exchange (VE) workshop, partnering fair and a tailored training.

What is Virtual Exchange?
VE is a digital teaching and learning pedagogy that fosters intercultural and often interdisciplinary cooperation between students and teaching staff from different locations and cultural backgrounds. By working together on interdisciplinary tasks in synchronous and asynchronous course activities, VE provides a unique learning experience that will take your courses to the next level. Join our upcoming events and discover the benefits of intercultural collaboration through VE.
ENLIGHT offers the following events:

13 June, 13:00 – 14:30 CEST (via Zoom) 
Partnering Fair

A crucial step towards the successful development of VE scenarios is finding suitable (interdisciplinary) partners to jointly elaborate course ideas, share disciplinary insights and plan co-teaching approaches. This process requires time to build a reliable partnership. A partnering fair event can offer a starting point for such a partnership to evolve.

Registration to be opened after the workshop. 

October 2023
Individual Online Training: Collaborative Class-to Class VE Design ( via Zoom)
This session is aimed at educators who have already experienced VE and who already have partners, this training completes the described approach effectively. Within five modules of synchronous online training on the design and implementation of successful class-to-class VE, participants can work on their specific VE-course and thus create output that can directly be applied to their teaching practice. 

Registration will open in September.
