Final Conference

EduChange final conference (29th June 2020) serves as a multiplier event, where we planned to share the results of our project with the international audience. Due to the Covid-19 we are unable to organise a truly international event in Olomouc, but we decided to have the final conference as a “blended” event. This means, that first part – morning sessions will be streamed online (in English), and the second part – afternoon sessions, will be only in Olomouc as practical workshops (in Czech and 2 online workshops in English).

The objective of the event is to share project outcomes more widely with interested stakeholders outside of the Project group. The conference also serves as a platform for developing future ideas of mobile informal learning in higher education.
