2nd Learning and Teaching Training Event (held online due to pandemic)
This week (8th-10th September 2020) the partners of the SEPA360 project successfully held their second Learning and Teaching Training Event (LTTE) online, due to the ongoing pandemic crisis (Covid-19). The initial event was planned to be hosted in Thessaloniki, Greece and would have brought together over 30 digital champions from interdisciplinary backgrounds in higher education. Even though the SEPA360 team transitioned the complete workshop into an online mode more than 25 digital champions were able to join the 3-day workshop and participate in breakout sessions.

The three day workshop was hosted by Prof. Dr. Kevin Burden (Coordinating Partner, University of Hull) and was split into an online morning and offline afternoon session. Each morning session included presentations of results and ongoing work, breakout sessions allowing national digital champions to work remotely on 360°-video scenarios as well as interactive feedback sessions collecting valuable input and feedback from participants.
Day 1: Scoping Study and 360°-Video Scenario Development
The first day of the workshop focused on presenting first results from the scoping study led by SEPA360 partner Italy from University of Florence. A broad spectrum of research has already been done in terms of exploring the use of 360°-video in higher education providing the digital champions some inspiration of how to apply 360°-video in their own scenarios. Also, recommendations were communicated and discussed focusing on the potential of activity-oriented and explorative scenarios.
