The IGNITE project team is delighted to announce the IGNITE digital roundtables on ‘Design Thinking & Maker Culture: Sticky Learning for the 21st Century’. The digital roundtables, which will be held on Wednesday afternoons through April via Zoom (8, 15, 22, 29 April), aim to explore how we can leverage digital technologies and new methods of teaching to promote ‘sticky learning’ — learning that is retained well after it is taught.
The speakers will cover subjects, such as digital innovation in teaching and learning in the humanities, flipped classroom teaching, maker culture as new forms of meaning-making and knowledge creation, how to prepare humanities students for a new labour market, and how can humanities knowledge take on and create solutions for global challenges while facilitating the digital transition of society.
The digital roundtables seek to explore these themes within the wider areas of education within the digital humanities, cultural studies, and the creative and cultural industries, both as part of traditional educational curricula as well as lifelong learning.
The first #IGNITEroundtable will be held on Wednesday 8 April 2020, 4-5pm (CEST)! This session will consist of three ten-minute papers, followed by a 15-minute discussion.
Reya Saliba, Weill Cornell Medicine (Qatar): Using the Flipped Classroom Model to Promote Critical Thinking and Lifelong Learning Skills
Barbara Heinisch, University of Vienna (Austria): Co-creation in citizen science as a form of lifelong learning for cultural heritage
Martin Gerner, Frankfurt University of Applied Sciences/ Technische Universität Dresden (Germany): Third Mission Calling – Accessing Creative Learning Environments through Blended Service Learning
Session Moderator: Marianne Ping Huang, School of Communication and Culture, Aarhus University.
