The Future of Academic Learning - A Collaborative “Hackathon” in Sweden

Are you interested in strengthening your English skills while discovering the world of learning theories and multilogues? And you are a strong believer that education should include theory and practice but also adapt to a transforming society?

Then join (us at) the Hackathon in Sweden, where you will, in collaboration with professors and students from other European countries, help create new inspiring ways to interact and learn in an academic setting!   

Four European institutions for higher education – Leuphana University (Lüneburg), Trnava University (Trnava), HFPH (Munich), and The Newman Institute (Uppsala) – are launching the project Blended Multilogues: Enhancing Transformation and Innovation in Higher Education. The aim of the project is to develop new innovative approaches to learning that enable collaboration on shared problems. The vision is to bring together not only teachers and students but other interested parties and to create spaces for multidimensional dialogue, i.e. multilogues, where participants may interact both face to face and online.

On September 26–30, 2022, an open-space workshop – a ”Hackathon” – will take place at the Newman Institute in Uppsala, Sweden, and online. During this week, students and teachers will work together to collect ideas and solve problems. Drawing on the students’ and teachers’expertise, the Hackathon results in a collection of solutions – a Toolkit – best practices and visions that will help design future academic education.


There are two ways in which students can get involved:

  1. Participate in the whole event in Uppsala, September 26–30. Travel, accommodation, and meals will be included. (Deadline for applications: June 30th 2022)
  2. Participate in the Hackathon online, September 28–29 (Wednesday–Thursday)
