Digital Skills Thematic study days

We strongly recommend participation in the following thematic days organised within the Swissuniversities project “Future university”, in collaboration with UniL. They will take place in Brig and Lausanne. They will feature guest speakers, teachers’ testimonies and workshops to explore each theme in-depth. Lectures and testimonies are offered in bimodal mode (physical presence or distance), and the workshops will take place in physical presence.

As digital technologies and pedagogies have become firmly established in higher education, new opportunities have emerged for online, asynchronous, and collaborative learning. In this session, I will demonstrate teaching approaches that take place within the collaborative whiteboard space of Miro. This includes asynchronous tutorials and poster exhibitions that adapt conventional classroom-based teaching in order to exploit the potentialities of online education.

Reflecting on my own experiences, but also with an eye towards relevant published research, I will propose ways of reconfiguring the spatial dimensions of education spaces to support online, asynchronous, bimodal, and collaborative learning.



Provocations around digital technologies and education

This session will take a crowd-sourcing approach as we collectively consider a series of provocations concerning digital technologies and university learning. Working in groups, but adding our ideas to a shared Miro space, we will respond to ideas around hybrid pedagogy, learning design and multimodality. To do this we will draw on our experiences and areas of practice, but we will also work speculatively and imaginatively as we explore new possibilities for digital education. As the session unfolds, our contributions will see the Miro space evolve into a collaborative and practical resource that will last beyond the end of the workshop, in order that the emergent ideas can inform our own practice.
