Innovative University: digital – international – transformative

The series Innovative Hochschule: digital – international – transformativ (Innovative University: digital – international – transformative) offers a platform for academic exchange in the field of higher education development. It addresses actors from higher education research, management and administration, as well as teaching staff. The series is characterized by three keywords:

  • Digital: Contributions address digitalization processes in higher education curricula, academic cooperation, and administrative practice, as well as their implications for the respective stakeholders.
  • International: Various perspectives on the dimensions of comprehensive internationalization of higher education institutions are discussed, with particular emphasis on innovative approaches.
  • Transformative: Further transformations that higher education institutions undergo based on shifts in their self-conception, or in reaction to changes in their societal and political environment, are presented.

This series covers academic contributions, works that connect theory and practice, and theses. Publications can be of either empirical or theoretical-conceptual nature, and they can be composed in either German or English.
