The environment in which higher education institutions have to operate has changed significantly in the last decade and is still changing. New student populations, governmental policy, new conceptions of learning and many other changes related to technological developments are causing higher education institutions to rethink their way of teaching and doing research. In the Netherlands these changes can also be seen. This chapter will discuss the changing context in Dutch higher education and describe the current experiences of teaching and learning with Information and Communications Technologies (ICT). Learning models and how these relate to the use of ICT in higher education will be discussed and conclusions about the current and future use of ICT in Dutch higher education institutions will be drawn.
