May 4, 2020 – Official Launch of the project  

As a kick-off on the Teknosofikum project (2020-2023), we invited higher education educators and other higher education stakeholders to a webinar on digital bildung (“digital dannelse”) on the other side of Covid-19.

The webinar (video to the left) was the first in a series of Teknosofikum webinars that touch upon the content areas of the Teknosofikum project. The first webinar focused on Teknosofikum – what is it and how is it relevant?
