AHEAD undertakes a systematic analysis of current trends and future demands on higher education in the areas of knowledge and competence requirements and examines the latest developments in learning theory, didactics and digital education technology against the background of an (increasingly) digitised higher education. The analysis provides the basis for a horizon scanning for higher education in 2030, which develops future scenarios that exploit social and digital innovations to meet future demands on higher education. The project is carried out by a project consortium led by Dr. Dominic Orr and supported by an international advisory committee.
