Join us for this exciting conference in Vienna on 25-26 March 2020 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. How can humanities knowledge take on and create solutions for global challenges while facilitating the digital transition of society?

This conference, sponsored by the IGNITE project, explores the potentials of humanities and heritage education for the 21st century by means of strategic/creative processes (i.e. Design Thinking and Maker Culture), new methods and technologies: from digital storytelling to the creation of 3D narratives, to using game design for problem solving, to employing augmented reality to resituate history and heritage for a contemporary audience.

If you are an educator or professional in Digital Humanities, Digital Cultures or Cultural Heritage, or have a professional development role for these sectors, join us in thinking through these ideas with educators/professionals/researchers from some 20 countries around the world.
