The Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences has joined the European EdTech Network (EETN). On July 8, during a member meeting, AUAS was officially welcomed and presented as a new member.
The EETN is a project co-founded by the European Commission that brings together EdTech experts, innovators, higher-education professionals and students, in order to connect the best specialists with the most creative minds from all over Europe and provide them with the most relevant EdTech content, to foster innovation in the field of higher education on the European market.
As an innovative platform, EETN aims to become a place where ideas, solutions, information, and best practices in the field of EdTech can be exchanged between all the parties, to boost the development of the European EdTech sector.
From the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences, this membership is led by Digital Society School (DSS) in close collaboration with our university’s faculties.
Dimitrios Vlachopolous, who is leading the membership on behalf of the DSS and AUAS is very excited about the newly forged collaboration: “At the “EdTech for Social Change” Track we aim to establish new partnerships with companies, universities, and other organizations that focus on educational technology. Our synergies with other distinguished partners from EETN will boost our efforts to transform existing pedagogical models and increase equity and quality in education through EdTech.”
Eva Haug, who is an Educational Advisor for Internationalisation of the Curriculum and COIL at the Faculty of Business and Economics, stresses that “from a curriculum perspective, global learning and virtual exchange (COIL) requires a strong and innovative network. By joining EETN, we hope to create international experiences for many students, especially those that aren’t internationally mobile.”
Milena Janowska of IE University in Madrid and EETN welcomes the AUAS as a valuable contributor to the network: “Developing the European EdTech Network means finding relevant, proactive Higher Education players in the European EdTech scene who, through collaboration and expertise exchange, bring education in Europe to the brand-new level. We are honoured to welcome AUAS as one of our Members and we are really looking forward to working together.”
