The Austrian Centre for Digital Humanities and Cultural Heritage is pleased to invite applicants to apply for 

the IGNITE Conference and Pre-conference Workshop
Design Thinking & Maker Culture 
(24th – 26th March 2020)University of Applied Arts, Vordere Zollamtsstraße 7, 1030 Vienna, Austria
We welcome abstracts for long papers (20 minutes + 5 minutes for questions); short papers (10 minutes) and posters which address themes related to the conference more generally, but which especially address:


  • Sticky learning in teaching technology within a humanities setting
  • Digital innovation in teaching and learning in the humanities
  • Flipped classroom teaching
  • Lifelong learning in the digital transformation for the heritage sector
  • Design thinking for the humanities and heritage
  • Maker Culture as new forms of meaning-making and knowledge creation
  • Novel ways to teach technology at Masters level, including 3D modelling, augmented and virtual reality, digital storytelling, game jamming
  • How do we prepare humanities students for a new labour market in the creative and cultural industries

A pre-conference, co-designed workshop will explore how we can integrate new modalities of teaching (online, blended and flipped classrooms) and enhance and empower humanities students to apply critical thinking through design and making, reflecting on how we can challenge the ways that education frameworks and knowledge institutions define humanities education, classrooms and curricula particularly at the postgraduate level. 
Submission Deadline extended until  31.1.2020
