International online winter camp

Today we run an international winter camp mediated by different functionalities of online tools. We have planned 4 very interesting workshops:

Frameworks for conducting user studies in Digital Learning Ecosystems – Jussi Okkonen (Tampere University; Finland) 

Applying pragmatism thoughts – Merja Bauters  (Tallinn University, Estonia).

The event will end with international 3x3x3 cross-country skiing competition: three countries, three participants per team, three kilometers.

First annual advisory board meeting

Just before Christmas last year, we had our first advisory board meeting. Considering the pandemic situation the meeting took place via Zoom. In addition to short presentations of our ongoing activities the main focus was on a discussion of how to conduct research and training online. Due to the COVID-19 our team has been in need to find ways to move our planned activities and events online. Therefore, every advice and recommendation on how to do that was very useful.
