        From: Konstantinos Papadopoulos 
        Subject: IGNITE Digital Roundtables - Design Thinking & Maker Culture: Sticky Learning for the 21st Century 

We are delighted to announce the IGNITE digital roundtables on ‘Design Thinking
& Maker Culture: Sticky Learning for the 21st Century’. The digital roundtables,
which will be held on Wednesday afternoons through April via Zoom (8, 15, 22, 29
April), aim to explore how we can leverage digital technologies and new methods
of teaching to promote ‘sticky learning’ -- learning that is retained well after
it is taught.

Our speakers will cover subjects, such as digital innovation in teaching and
learning in the humanities, flipped classroom teaching, maker culture as new
forms of meaning-making and knowledge creation, how to prepare humanities
students for a new labour market, and how can humanities knowledge take on and
create solutions for global challenges while facilitating the digital transition
of society.

The digital roundtables seek to explore these themes within the wider areas of
education within the digital humanities, cultural studies, and the creative and
cultural industries, both as part traditional educational curricula as well as
lifelong learning.

The first #IGNITEroundtable will be held on Wednesday 8 April 2020, 4-5pm
(CEST)! This session will consist of three ten-minute papers, followed by a 15
minute discussion.
