Design Thinking & Maker Culture

(24–26th March 2020)

The Austrian Centre for Digital Humanities and the University of Applied Arts are pleased to invite applicants to apply for the IGNITE Conference and Pre-conference Workshop.

This conference seeks to explore themes related to sticky learning (problem and project-based learning, active classrooms, etc.), design thinking and maker culture within the wider areas of education within the digital humanities, cultural studies, and the creative and cultural industries, both as part of traditional educational curricula as well as lifelong learning.
We welcome abstracts for long papers (20 minutes + 5 minutes for questions); short papers (10 minutes) and posters which address themes related to the conference more generally, but which especially address:

•    Sticky learning in teaching technology within a humanities setting
•    Digital innovation in teaching and learning in the humanities
•    Flipped classroom teaching
•    Lifelong learning in the digital transformation for the heritage sector
•    Design thinking for the humanities and heritage
•    Maker Culture as new forms of meaning-making and knowledge creation
•    Novel ways to teach technology at Masters level, including 3D modelling, augmented and virtual reality, digital storytelling, game jamming
•    How do we prepare humanities students for a new labour market in the creative and cultural industries

A pre-conference, co-designed workshop will explore how we can integrate new modalities of teaching (online, blended and flipped classrooms) and enhance and empower humanities students to apply critical thinking through design and making, reflecting on how we can challenge the ways that education frameworks
 and knowledge institutions define humanities education, classrooms and curricula particularly at the postgraduate level.

Submission Deadline: 7.1.2020
