Time: 14.00-16.10
Where: Digitally (connecting instructions will be sent out to registered the day before the event)

We welcome you to this open workshop with focus on mining-related distance education!

During 2020 the need for distance education has been further emphasized by the pandemic. The Swedish Mining Innovation Program supported ten projects during the year with the aim to develop mining related distance education in order to ensure high quality education also when distance education is the only option.

The purpose of the workshop is to share and discuss experience from the projects related to distance education within the Swedish Mining Innovation during 2020, and also to discuss future needs.

The workshop is open to anyone interested in mining-related distance education (teachers, industry, students, or just interested) and we hope for a lot of forward thinking discussions that can guide or efforts in this area in the coming year.
