Academic Network Conference in Graz


The Academic Network of the European Academy of Digital Media (EADiM) had the annual conference in Graz, Austria, end of last week. This year the conference was titled "Design, Develop, Deliver - Multimedia and e-content trends".

The sessions covered actual topics like
  • Smart Interfaces – intuitive use of augmented and mixed realities
  • Mega trends in e-content – what do they mean for education?
  • Learning and Teaching Methods – innovations that raise the learning curve
  • Students and Social Networks
  • Teaching Interactive Story Authoring
I made a presentation about Demola, the New innovation environment in ICT and Media education in Tampere. It was good to see many of the partners of TAMK School of Art and Media again, also making new friends. All participants of the conference were welcomed to attend our International Week and Tampere Art Factory in May.

The Conference was arranged at FH Joanneum, which also is a TAMK partner university. On day 3 the conference joined an parallel event, the EUROPRIX Multimedia Festival. You will find a story about that soon in this blog.
