EFQUEL will co-organise a workshop with The European Interest Group on Creativity and Innovation (EICI) at the Media and Learning conference (Brussels, 14-15 Nov) this year.
The workshop is entitled “VISIR’s learning innovation workshop – promoting innovation and creativity in the regions” (15th o November, 11:00 – 12:30, Plateau room)
Digital media offers a large variety of possibilities to innovate the learning settings in the European classrooms. Not only do they offer a more learner-centred learning approach and environment but they also strengthen learners’ ability to think critically as well as to work more collaboratively and independently with colleagues and peers. So far, flexible learning scenarios are still not very common in Europe.
The VISIR project has identified several best practices in its partner regions which will be demonstrated within a workshop session during the Media & Learning Conference in November and which will outline the positive effect on the students’ learning ability and their creative thinking when using flexible learning scenarios through the use of digital media.
In an off- and online follow-up discussion the VISIR consortium wants to identify the main important political and societal changes which have to be carried out that learning innovation and new open learning styles will become a reality in all European regions.
Furthermore EFQUEL will hold a stand at the confernece, on the 14th of November. The full programme and more information about the Media and Learning conference is available on their website: http://www.media-and-learning.eu/home
