2018 elections: call for candidates to the EUNIS Board of Directors

EUNIS 2018 General Assembly will be held on 7th of June (Thursday) 2018 during the EUNIS Congress in Paris. All official representatives of EUNIS Members are entitled to take part in the meeting. This forum is where all the decisions related to the EUNIS’ structure and organisation are made and updates from the EUNIS Task Forces and Board are presented. The General Assembly has two other very important duties: the election of EUNIS members to the EUNIS Board and approval of the EUNIS budget that will be presented by the Treasurer.

The representatives of European Higher Education and Research institutions (regular members) having paid their annual fee, take part in the voting and elections to the Board.

In June 2018 the 3-year service of four Board Members will come to the end:
  • Mr. Raimund Vogl, University of Münster, Germany (the President of EUNIS)
  • Mr. Tomasz SzmucAGH University of Science and Technology, Poland (the Vice-President of EUNIS)
  • Mr. Bas Cordewener, Jisc, UK (Board member)
  • Mr. Mikael Berglund, Umeå University, Sweden (Board member)

Mr. Vogl, Mr. Szmuc and Mr. Cordewener are candidates to their re-election. The biographies of all Board members can be found on the EUNIS website.

All the above have the opportunity to be re-elected, but we are actively soliciting new candidatures to the EUNIS Board among the regular members – especially since one current board member is not running for re-election. If, as a regular member representative, you are interested in putting forward your candidature to act in the Board of Directors of EUNIS, we kindly ask you to send an email by close of business on Tuesday 22nd of May 2018 with a short biography, photo and the motivation of your interest to: Jean-Francois Desnos, EUNIS Executive Secretary: jfdesnos@orange.fr.

  • Designing learning experiences in a digital age

Technology enhanced learning no longer means making text-based resources available in digital format. Our challenge in the digital age is to design experiences that enhance learning. We want to achieve student-centered active learning. This involves pedagogic design skills and consideration of the physical learning space. We have the means to ensure our designs are informed by analytics about learners and the curriculum if we have the wisdom to make good use of the data.

Hear from experts in the field and participate in a hands-on workshop using a tried and tested approach to effective, data-informed learning design.

Timing: Tuesday 5th June 10:00 – 17:00
Venue: Centre de conférences de Sorbonne Université, campus Jussieu

  • Ready for the digital age

More and more each day, students are demanding for processes that can be carried out online and can provide them with the ability to obtain information almost immediately. In this scenario, the need to digitize processes is important to allow administrative tasks to be done more efficiently and to facilitate the exchange of information autonomously without the need to take into account academic calendars or time zones. In this aspect, different initiatives have been put into practice and are currently functioning allowing higher education institutions to offer higher quality services to their students, in addition to being aligned with the needs of those who are digital natives.

The objective of the workshop is to present the projects focused on the exchange of data within the framework of student mobility, and to know first-hand the future of these projects, as well as to share experiences and opinions.

Timing: Tuesday 5th June 10:00 – 17:00
Venue: Centre de conférences de Sorbonne Université, campus Jussieu
