Online Media in Higher Education

The OMHE (Online Media Higher Education) events are organised by three Dutch Universities: Leiden University, Delft University of Technology and Erasmus University Rotterdam.

On 22 May the sixth edition of OMHE will take place in The Hague at Leiden University.

OMHE 2018 is all about understanding our online and offline communities. Our audience moves almost seamlessly from one platform to another, both online and offline. How do we connect the existing and new technology with the needs and expectations of our (current and potential) students and researchers from all over the world? How and where can we reach them in a relevant way? And how do we, as communication professionals, make an impact in a world that is already overloaded with information?

Our contribution

Our colleagues Tanja and Monique will be hosting a breakout session "Promoting interaction in online communities without trolling accidents" in English here's more information about it:

How do you give an online audience of global learners a true campus experience so they stay motivated and understand the value of your institution? And how can you connect campus students with your online community to increase their international experience?When dealing with an online learning environment it can be a struggle to connect the global world with the real life campus of your university, and yet keep out the trolls and activists. In this workshop on interactivity during online learning we’ll deal with questions like: How do you encourage interaction in an open global online community without dealing with all the negativity such attention might.
