SPACE CONFERENCE- KAVALA - Digital Transformation: challenges for work and education
8-9-10 MAY 2019

The early bird fee registration (280 €) is still  open!

Mr. Bruno Bevernaegie (HOGENT) will give a presentation and a practical workshop on how digital solutions can help you enormously in your teaching activities. He asks:  “Please bring your own device, preferably a notebook/laptop” 
Bob Dylan was one of the first to know. The times, they are changing. When you entered any classroom in 1977, you would not hear much except for the teacher’s voice and pens scratching on paper. Nowadays, in 2019, one expects more from modern teaching. 
There are a lot of possibilities to enhance interaction and to ensure students' minds do not wander. In this hands-on workshop, you learn how to use online applications that invite students to actively contribute to the learning process.  These interactive learning activities can be presented in the form of  a quiz, a brainstorm, a survey, ... With their smartphone students access the application and consequently the beamer shows the results in real time.   

Present-day students were born in a digital world. More and more teachers would like to respond to this and experiment with new educational methods such as blended learning or with new learning materials such as web lectures, knowledge clips, online courses etc... . Lectures, books and courses do not have to be banned yet, but they will remain only one of the components in the mix of blended learning. 
Often external conditions such as large groups, working students, simultaneous classes, ... force teachers to adapt their lessons to new circumstances. 

Some teachers feel they have to follow suit but they do not know how. Sometimes they are blinded by expensive MOOCs made by prestigious universities, but small can also be beautiful. Digital solutions can help you tackle these external problems. From a didactical point of view they will not only facilitate your teaching, they will certainly lead to better learning outcomes for all target groups.
