Digitalisation of economy is setting new challenges for the Swiss academic community. The eduhub community plays a central role in helping institutions address these challenges. On the one hand, digitalisation of teaching and learning should follow best practice gained from our long-standing experience. On the other hand, disciplines and methods are transformed by the advent of digital technologies. Because of this, we also have to help students to think in new ways that integrate possibilities of modern computation.

During the past 10 years the challenges of the Swiss academic community have changed a lot. Since then, new possibilities for teaching and learning have emerged. Digitalisation in higher education and research has brought about new trends and methods for teaching and learning and has revolutionised the Swiss academic landscape. Disciplines are transforming themselves and the way they produce knowledge. New interpersonal and digital skills are necessary to master the new challenges that digitalisation in higher education generates.
