Ten courses receive funding for adaptation to digital learning


Now it has been decided that Swedish Mining Innovation’s call to support distance learning in these difficult times is funding ten excellent projects.

The goal of the projects are to adapt mining, mineral and metal related courses to suit student needs such that the quality of education and attractiveness of the course will be maintained. For example projects for adopting courses to distance learning include adapting VR/AR, interaction between teachers and students in field courses and experimental demonstrations, and distance learning tools for reaching locations without high quality internet.

Even when the times are better, the tools adapted will improve access to and quality of learning, and attract students to education in the branch.

Each project will contribute to a workshop in December to share experiences and recommendations on how to continue to develop these methods.
