Dated from 2016 the Digital Educational Strategy of Hungary [1] concluded, that adaptation of advanced pedagogic methodology and ICT is generally at low level in HEIs, its progress is slow and very much uneven not only regarding different institutions but even within the same faculty or department. Working for the e-Learning Centre at a provincial university of Hungary, we launched a comprehensive survey on the openness of our colleagues for educational innovation. Teaching staff at the six different faculties at our university were asked to fill in a questionnaire, asking them about their digital competencies and habits, about the different teaching/learning tools they know/apply. Answers were also analyzed to compare the teaching practice of different faculties and different cohort of teachers. In our poster, we wish to give detailed analysis of our first findings by attractive infographics.
