Objectives:

The new technology was awaited with high anticipation and was expected to bring revolutionary change, learning and teaching were to be made much more effective by multimedia tools and the Internet. Compared to what was hoped for, the current state of art does not necessarily display a quarter-century-long pilot phase. Nevertheless, in some areas, the experimental phase has already been replaced by best practice methods. During the conference, we plan to share some of these with the participants in order to create a space for the exchange of good practices and facilitate mutual learning with up-to-date results. The chosen topics are closely connected to the ET 2020 strategy, and promote the use of work-based learning methods and open-source learning materials (OER).
