Online event (17-18 August 2020): Development and Implementation of two blended international master’s programmes on educational technology
The recent pandemic, and the consequent lockdown, has forced teachers and educators around the globe to move online their teaching practice. This has turned out to be a major challenge, which has brought our attention to the promise and perils of online education. How to move forward? How to engage educational technology? How to re-organize teaching and learning in uncertain times? How to re-design them given the available tools?
On the 17th and 18th of August 2020 the University of Tartu together with the University of Utrecht and Riga Technical University organizes a two-day on-line event entitled “Development and Implementation of two blended international master’s programme on educational technology”, which is open to all those who are interested in knowing more about online education and educational technology in a hopefully post-Covid19 world.
Stemming from the experience of two blended Master’s programmes – one in Tartu and one in Riga, the event provides a chance for educational practitioners and researchers to explore alternative ways of learning educational technology and reflect on the broader implications that technology use in education has.
The event is organized in the frame of the Erasmus+ Project “MA in Educational Technology: A New Online Blended Learning Program for New Member States”.
N.B. The event is sold out. We were forced to close registration. The recording of the event will be available soon after the event itself.
