The next HEInnovate webinar will explore the key pillars of the national policy approaches to enhance digital transformation in higher education in Ireland and in Hungary. In addition, university representatives will discuss the impact of COVID-19 on teaching and learning as well as on the entrepreneurial culture in higher education institutions. The challenge is to turn what started as an emergency response to the pandemic into sustainable changes with a potential to enhance the quality of the learning experience.
