Invitation to the discussion: “Digitalization in Higher Education: International Trends and Domestic (Belarusian) Challenges”

The European Humanities University, in collaboration with several European embassies, is launching a series of discussions under the overarching theme “Topical Challenges and New Trends in Higher Education: Towards Education Reform in Belarus”

These discussions will convene experts and scholars from Belarus and various European countries. The initiative aims to address key challenges and trends in higher education, both regionally and globally, with a focus on the necessity for education system reform in Belarus.

The meetings will occur monthly, with each session featuring two presentations (each lasting 10-15 minutes) followed by a moderated discussion.

Recordings of the presentations and discussions will be disseminated through EHU channels for broader coverage. Each meeting is expected to yield pertinent recommendations for higher education reform in Belarus.
