The aim of this open symposium is to bring together researchers, practitioners as well as people from the industry to discuss challenges relating to digitalisation, education and design: the role of the teacher. Teachers have difficulties in finding time to learn, use and integrate ICT in their teaching, to design and organise learning activities so that students can develop their digital competences. Sometimes teachers need to be convinced that ICT can improve their work if their intention to use ICT in teaching and learning activities is to become a reality. Challenges like these might be even tougher considering the rapid development of virtual reality and ICT-tools related to the recent trend of ‘the Internet of things’. New ICT that already have started to find their way in to education.

For the day we have invited three international keynote speakers who will give 30 minutes’ inspirational talks that each is followed by interactive and participant-driven sessions.
