December 2023

In November 2023, ASH Berlin, in cooperation with the HIS Institute for Higher Education Development e.V. (HIS-HE), invited participation in a process to develop a digitalization strategy for the university. HIS-HE is a cooperative that has been supporting universities for over 50 years in areas including higher education planning and development. In several workshops, participants from study and teaching, administration, and IT contributed ideas to a first draft of the digitalization strategy. We would like to express our sincere thanks for the input from these workshops and the great commitment of the participants! By February 2024, we will compile these points into a first draft paper for the digitalization strategy.
