The role of technology in higher education is growing. During the last decade learning management systems have been widely used to simplify administrative tasks. The forms of teaching were not affected, however. In the years to come this is likely to change. This one day workshop deals with the introduction and practical use of digital media in teaching. It is aimed at librarians, educators and education managers that want to explore the possibility of producing online courses.

17 AUG 2017

The primary focus of this session is on the participatory role of libraries, museums and archives in projects based on multi-ethnic collaborations, in saving and promoting historical and cultural memories, and in supporting contacts between different local and regional communities.
