Indonesia has committed to expanding its ‘freedom of learning policies’ in an attempt to move away from teacher centred teaching. The goal is to more actively draw school-aged students into engaging with their own learning and its (self-)assessment. In this paper we explore the successes and challenges of this policy to date, including how Covid has both hindered and supported its roll-out in a time of anxieties about significant learning loss. We make the argument that a new form of pedagogy is required and begun to evolve, namely the pedagogy of connectivism. Additionally, in drawing upon such insights it is necessary to build skills and experience in the design and use of digital learning environments. While Indonesia is the case in point, we open to a workshop on this with participants and their experiences form around the world.

Education´s digital future depends not the least on our ability to keep a dialog open between and across scholarly disciplines. As universities go, this is not a discipline that we excel at. What elements in exploring digital transformations in higher education point themselves out for planned collaboration? In this workshop we will explore three such dimensions: Within mathematics, within HR/leadership and within the social sciences/humanities. How might we develop an agenda for insight co-creation?
The workshop is based on the BOOST EDU Erasmus+ project.
