EPIC: On the digital transformation in higher education

EPIC is the Educational Pioneers and Innovators Conference. Hosted by the Dutch Acceleration Plan, EPIC is a one time only international conference aimed at sharing and accelerating innovative practices in higher education worldwide. What digital transformations in higher education are currently taking place? What are the global trends in technology-enhanced innovation in higher education?  

Are you an educational innovator? Are you pioneering innovative technology in your education? Are you a subject matter expert, an innovative member of support staff at a higher education institution, a member of an assessment board, a policy adviser at a higher education institution or governmental organisation? Or maybe you are a member of a student organisation? Then EPIC is for you!  

Keynotes will be provided by Adam Finkelstein, Dirk Van Damme, Roger Dassen, Anka Mulder and Farshida Zafar. Minister of the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science Robbert Dijkgraaf and Arthur P.J. Mol will open EPIC.
