IGNITE Digital Roundtables 2020

IGNITE organized five digital roundtables with a focus on ‘Design Thinking & Maker Culture: Sticky Learning for the 21st Century’ from 8 April to 11 June 2020.

The roundtables explored 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 covered 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 explored 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.
