The half-day Digital Learning Summit is being chaired by Gill Ferrell, IMS Europe Program Director, and Leader of EUNIS Learning & Teaching Task Force. Her specially curated programme, entitled ‘Build back hybrid’, will address the impact of the pandemic and its huge impact on higher education. The event will explore the implications of this seismic shift.

There will also be great success stories of universities developing creative solutions to deliver hybrid learning at scale.
