At the conference, you will be able to take part in presentations in four different formats: oral presentation, workshop, roundtable discussions and digital posters. The conference language is primarily English, but we have also welcomed presentations in Swedish.
Marika Strömberg, architect and developer of educational environments at KTH, begins with a brief review of the investments that are now being made at KTH to develop creative study environments and inviting campus environments. This is followed by discussions in small groups based on two issues:
Which students / subjects are suitable for the completely digital teaching and which ones require physical attendance?
How do we want the physical education environments to work? What pedagogical method should we build for in the future? Are there new pedagogical methods? Which?
Inge is a senior learning strategist, longtime researcher, award-winning learning innovator and (e)Learning coordinator. She has taught master students in eLearning knowledge (Institute of Tropical Medicine - ITM), built new courses (MobiMOOC – massive open online course on mobile learning), mentor professional engineers to prepare them for international, blended curricula (InnoEnergy, Europe), and researched Technology Enhanced Learning in formal, blended, and informal settings (ITM, Belgium, Athabasca University, Canada; The Open University, UK). Her expertise has been recognised by peers, resulting in additional co-authored papers, invited talks and keynotes in both academic as well as professional conferences, workshops and seminars.
The conference ends with a panel discussion that puts the conference's main theme in focus, namely Learning spaces and the issue of good education for all students. The idea is that the panel will summarize the conference and its most important contributions, to seek answers to the question of what characterizes a good Learning Space and how it can be involved in our various courses and programs. How do we as teachers, students and leaders of higher education contribute to the goal of a good Learning space?
