Educational innovator: come to the 2021 Comenius Festival

19 February 2021

The Comenius Network is organising its second festival on 1 March, from 13.00 to 17.00 hrs., where educational innovators will share their knowledge and inspiration with one another and with other interested parties. In this online event we will celebrate with you the opportunities for innovation in higher education. 

Innovating together

The theme of the festival is ‘innovating together’. Our aim is to emphasise the importance of inclusive teamwork in bringing about successful innovation in education.  

Successful innovation is achieved in a diverse team where there is room for different skills, disciplines, areas of expertise and social and cultural backgrounds. The synergy and challenges in your team are things you have undoubtedly experienced in your work on your innovation project or in developing digital education. 

Presentation of the 2021 Dutch Higher Education Awards 

At the festival, organisers and participants will share knowledge of educational innovations in ComeniusCircles and TeacherTalks, or will work together via the themes being addressed in the network. At the end of the afternoon, the recipients of the 2021 Dutch Higher Education Awards will be announced by Minister of Education, Culture and Science Ingrid van Engelshoven. This award, which is being presented this year for the first time, is intended to contribute to recognising and rewarding higher education and giving a further impetus to improvements in education.

It promises to be a lively afternoon! Sign up for the festival and invite your colleagues along too. The festival is open to anyone interested in innovation in education.
