CIDUI with its 20 years of history as a space and agora for teaching innovation widely recognized by our university system, cannot be a stranger at this unprecedented moment in higher education, and aims to give teachers from all over the world a voice to share and amplify the strategies and conclusions drawn during these last months, analysing the own and international experience, thus initiating a transformative reflection in the medium-long term. Under this term, the organization of CIDUI proposes to adapt to the current situation and collect all these elements by presenting an extraordinary International Symposium in just virtual format to take advantage of the experience that this emergency situation has generated.
The principles of the knowledge society demand the generation of new knowledge to allow constant innovation that would be able to respond to new realities and challenges. With these principles in mind we propose the holding of an International Symposium under the title “Higher education in the knowledge society: challenges of hybrid models”. In the Symposium we will debate and analyse the potential of hybrid formations. We will use the international experiences, which have been generated as a result of this global health crisis, with the purpose to contribute to solving the present and future challenges posed to higher education institutions in the framework of the knowledge society.
This Symposium aims to speak and debate not only with the teaching teams, but also with the government teams, the administration and management teams and the students themselves, since new realities have not been generated only in the teaching dimension but also in coordination and management within the teams themselves and between units, and thus draw conclusions that allow us to innovate in these training combinations of a mixed and significant nature that contribute to improving the higher education of our university system.
