In life, there is no digital switch. Digitalisation is transforming our society and higher education institutions. The Practitioners’ Field Guide for Implementing Educational Technology is an online resource that provides research-based recommendations for practitioners implementing Edtech. It equips readers with case study examples, discussion guides and checklists. In the guide, we unpack the role university leaders play in fostering engagement with Edtech, talk about the importance of trust and freedom for innovation and explore teachers’ motivation and resistance to use technology, and reflect on what is needed to build a sound infrastructure for Edtech.



Melissa Laufer is a senior researcher in the research program “Knowledge & Society” and leads the research project “Organizational Adaptivity in the German Higher Education Context” (OrA).

Freia Kuper is a researcher in the research project Organisational Adaptivity in the German Higher Education Context (OrA) within the research programme “Knowledge and Society”, where she works on digitalisation in higher education.



We are looking forward to discussing the future of digital teaching and learning and the possibilities of educational technology. Invite-only event.

This high-profile lecture series thrives to develop a European perspective on the processes of transformation that our societies are currently undergoing.


Once a month we publicly discuss the impact of digitalisation on the society. Therefore we invite special guests and engage in a dialogue with the audience.
