From the 4th to the 18th of August 2017, the Game Changers programme will be taking another road trip. The destination? Malaysia.
As part of the CreativeCulture (NEWTON) project, Sylvester Arnab, Luca Morini, and Jayne Beaufoy will be travelling to Malaysia in collaboration with Universiti Malaysia Sarawak. The road trip will explore the impact of arts, design and culture in enhancing creative thinking and development in education.

The DMLL will be hosting a Training School (TS) of the European Literacy Network (ELN) in September (4th-6th), with a special focus on approaches to assessing literacy skills in a digital world.
The three-day TS will include a variety of presentations, round-table discussions, poster exhibitions and workshops aiming to both share expertise and envision new ways of understanding and capturing students’ digital fluency. Participants will have the opportunity to present their work, discuss ideas, explore innovative pedagogical approaches and collaborate with peers in highly interactive sessions.
Professor Julian McDougall (Bournemouth University, UK), Dr Maria José Brites (Lusophone University of Porto and University of Minho, Portugal) and Dr Igor Kanižaj (University of Zagreb, Croatia) are some of the experts who will participate as guest speakers in the training school.
The training school is aimed at researchers, educators, postdocs and PhD students based in EU countries whose work is relevant to the topic of the Training School (TS), from any discipline or area of study. Applications from strong graduate students may be considered too. Due to the highly interactive format of the event, only 20 applicants will be selected to participate. A number of grants (up to €600 each) to support travel and accommodation expenses are available.

Sign up details will be released in the near future.
ELN is funded by a COST action aiming to strengthen Europeans’ Capabilities. The Training School is managed by Dr Luis Pereira and Dr Daniel Villar-Onrubia.
