Enhancing digi-pedagogical skills of higher education staff and change of learning environments

To facilitate meeting the requirements of 21st century student-centered learning, it is important to strengthen higher education teachers' digi-pedagogical skills. This includes the development of pedagogical thinking, technical infrastructures and learning environments. Importantly, any development needs to be based on rigorous assessment and research. This FERA pre-conference explores and outlines a wide array of research and practices around digi-pedagogical learning. The program includes invited presentations by distinguished researcher, professor Mien Segers (University of Maastricht) and professor Filip Dochy. UEF DigiPeda (i.e. Flipped Learning) project is responsible in arranging the pre-conference as part of the Finnish Ministry of Education and Culture funded key development project.  Language of the pre-conference is English.
