        Subject: Design Thinking and Making: A Masterclass for Educators and Professionals in the Creative and Cultural Industries

Do you teach students who intend to pursue careers in the GLAM, Cultural
Tourism, or Heritage sectors? Are you a professional in any of these
sectors (or who supports these sectors) with an education brief? If so,
please join us at Maastricht University from 3-5 March 2019
(https://ignite.acdh.oeaw.ac.at/masterclass-maastricht-university/) to
explore integrating into the curriculum design thinking and
problem-based learning by teaching new technologies, from digital
storytelling to game play, from 3D modeling to virtual reality.

This Masterclass will explore the challenges and opportunities of
preparing students or current professionals for and in careers in which
understanding how to embed creative, interactive, and user-focussed
technologies into everyday activities is as crucial as the more
traditional skills we teach.

These themes will be explored within the context of the IGNITE
curriculum (https://ignite.acdh.oeaw.ac.at/), a suite of courses
delivered through #dariahTeach and designed for online, blended and
flipped classrooms, workshops, or life-long learning activities. An
objective of the Masterclass is to provide each participant with
strategies for integrating these methods, technologies, and skills into
their teaching practice (for educators) or to create educational
opportunities for current professionals (for those already working in
the sector).

Generous funding is available for all participants from EU Member States
travelling to Maastricht. For further details and to register see
