IGNITE digital roundtables: sticky Learning for the 21st Century

The IGNITE project, coordinated by Maastricht University, is delighted to announce a series of 4 Zoom roundtables to be held on Wednesday afternoons through April (8, 15, 22, 29 April).

These 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.

Our 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 humanities knowledge can 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 of lifelong learning.

The first IGNITE roundtable will be held on Wednesday 8 April 2020, 14.00 – 15.00 (CEST). This session will consist of three ten-minute papers, followed by a 15-minute discussion.
