As outlined in the internationalization strategy 2020 (PDF 495 KB), the FernUniversität in Hagen considers international digital teaching and learning to be a cornerstone of its academic positioning. Since 2016, nine international digital/blended teaching projects have been established in a variety of degree programs at the FernUniversität in Hagen, seven of which have been generously supported by the internal Funding Program for Innovative Teaching (Förderprogramm Innovative Lehre).

Based on these projects, the International Office at the FernUniversität in Hagen, in close collaboration with our dedicated teaching staff, has compiled a set of guidelines to provide information and support for teaching staff interested in setting up a joint digital or blended learning unit with international partners and to address some of the most relevant issues for international digital teaching collaborations.

The FernUniversität is grateful to its committed teaching staff for setting the stage at our university and sharing their expertise and experience in our institutional Community of Practice and on the web. Additionally, we would like to thank our main partners, Open University of Jyväskylä, Universidad Oberta de Catalunyaa, and Open Universiteit Nederland for establishing a dialogue for joint international digital teaching as well as the European Association of Distance Teaching Universities (EADTU) for their ongoing support and input.

Please do not hesitate to contact us for further information and support with international cooperation projects and networks.
