Are you looking to enhance your digital and pedagogical skills in order to take full advantage of EdTech? This workshop will offer you practical hands-on tools and methods for contemporary, student-activating teaching.
You will learn how to structure and plan classes, in which EdTech is combined with cooperative learning and flipped classroom to transform the students from passive recipients to active participants.
We will explore free platforms such as FlipGrid, Tricider, Nearpod, Floop, and Mentimeter, and concrete student engaging exercises with focus on mutual student co-dependency that will bring variation and motivation into your daily teaching practice will likewise be introduced.
The workshop will have a very short theoretical introduction, but the time will mostly be spent on presenting tools and exercises that the participants can easily integrate in their own classes. Everything will be thoroughly explained as well as there will be specific examples on sequences, modules, and courses, where the exercises and tools can be used.
This Pre-conference workshop does not require you to prepare anything in advance. In it, you will learn how to take on the teaching role that fits our digital age and how:
Who Will Benefit Most from Taking Part?
Teachers and educators from high schools and universities
Over the past two decades working with instructors at every level of education, the plainest objection to online learning has been that it is impossible to preserve classroom pedagogy—much less intimacy and community—when separated from students by distance, with only a screen to connect teachers with their classes. While "research-based" methods of teaching online, and the instructional design that unwinds from them, offer a lot of guarantees on the matters of student success, quality assurance, standardization, and replicable results, none go so far as to provide not just a sense of community, but community real and palpable.
In this hybrid workshop, we will explore synchronous and asynchronous approaches to creating meaningful communities in online learning environments. We will take as our example the tradition of letter writing, and we will experiment with a few forms during our time together, and also extrapolate solutions appropriate to each of our own unique circumstances.
Participants in this workshop will be asked to complete a few readings prior to the workshop. Those readings are listed below. While not strictly required, these readings will provide a backdrop and important context in order to fully participate in the synchronous workshop on 1 December.

PLEASE NOTE: As seats are limited to encourage interaction, you will need to pre-register for this workshop on the conference registration form.
This year marks the tenth edition of the Speexx Exchange at OEB, taking place in Berlin on December 2.
Join 300+ top industry experts and thought leaders from more than 20 countries around the world to discuss the “new normal” and the acceleration of digital transformation in HR and L&D.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, it’s felt like someone pressed the fast-forward button on digital transformation: Overnight, it seemed, once global lock-downs were put in place, organisations had to prepare for – and employees had to get accustomed to – everyone working and learning from home. This year’s Speexx Exchange conference is the perfect place at which to explore the new normal and today’s rapidly changing talent management practices.
Our host will once again be international learning expert, author and Partner at Industry Insights Laura Overton (previously, Founder and CEO of Towards Maturity). In addition to a lineup of speakers presenting their organizations’ global digital transformation projects, the program features (safe, digitally-assisted) networking, the latest industry research, and opportunities to exchange best practices and lessons learned with regard to the new normal, digital transformation and corporate learning.
Confirmed speakers to-date represent a variety of nationalities and companies - spanning healthcare, professional social networks, automotive/manufacturing and more and will include:
Speexx Exchange will be compliant with all safety regulations and proper social distancing measures reinforced. Register now as live seats are limited: https://www.speexx.com/exchange-conference/.

Anyone: experts are welcome and beginners as well
Could you design and prototype high-quality fully remote courses in one day? Yes, if-
• you get the right people there,
• know great well researched learning frameworks
• acquire a structured design methodology
The ‘Phoenix’ workshop based on the Carpe Diem methodology will enable you to acquire the core concepts of the method and practice with others.
Start of workshop

Review & presentations
Anyone with knowledge of education in their discipline or profession.
Prior to the workshop, you will receive an information message with practical information in order to prepare for the workshop (preparation-work is around one hour to practice with Miro and to watch 3 short videos about the learning design method).
Would you like to start using avatar-based meetings in virtual reality environments for teaching and learning?
Some advantages of teaching, learning and collaboration in VR rooms are that all students are noticeably in the same room, can see and hear each other immediately and even have an impressive experience in 3D and 360 degrees (though participation without special VR equipment and with a variety of devices, such as desktops, laptops, tablets or smartphones can participate too).
VR environments such as AltspaceVR and Mozilla Hubs are available free of charge and offer ready-made spaces in which different learning scenarios can become a reality. In this pre-conference workshop you will be able to experience and experiment with interaction and teaching scenarios in VR spaces of Mozilla Hubs.
Join us to learn how to put a specific VR classroom into operation and how to invite students to your learning environment. We will use a variety of free VR spaces and you will be able to participate with your own avatar with or without VR equipment.
Participants are invited to use their laptop or, if available, their VR device.
Mozilla Hubs is browser-based, therefore no installation is needed. It runs on Windows, OSX, Android, IOS and all VR-Devices which can start VR-Applikations in a browser.
