On the 12th and 13th of October 2018, the Archaeological Department of the University of Cologne is hosting a two-day symposium. The preparations are in full swing and we now released a preliminary Communicating the Past Programme.

As we mentioned before, we are organising a two-day event around digital methods in teaching archaeology: Communicating the past in the Digital Age. The last couple weeks we organised everything from A for accommodations to V for venues (W-Z are still missing). The P for programme is out now and you can have a look here.

We have two days fully packed with 14 presentation from speakers around the globe. So, we start on the 12th with a session on “Archaeogaming”, followed by a session on “Learning in the museum” and a conference dinner for the participants. On the second day, we continue with a session on “Digital tools in the classroom” and on “Digital Learning Environments”. Also, after the presentations, we join for technical demonstrations and a final discussion. Check out the Communicating the Past Programme!
