HEInnovate online practice session – The HEInnovate action cards

The next HEInnovate webinar will be dedicated to exploring the HEInnovate action cards in the form of small interactive group conversations using breakout rooms. The HEInnovate action cards provide relevant and actionable recommendations for short-, medium- and long-term implementation along the dimensions of HEInnovate. The 56 action cards and accompanying instruction materials can be downloaded from the HEInnovate Training materials website: https://heinnovate.eu/en/heinnovate-resources/training-materials

During the hour-long practice session, a team of HEInnovate experts will provide you with the opportunity to explore the action cards and ask any questions you might have on how to use them for action planning in your institution.  

The online practice session will take place on Thursday, the 29th February 2024 at 5pm CET and will be held as a Zoom meeting, where we invite all participants to contribute.
