Berlin School of Business and Innovation (BSBI) has launched the initiative ‘BSBI Dialogues’, aimed at exploring the possibilities of distance learning with a global audience.
BSBI Dialogues is a series of webinars dedicated to innovation, focusing on the need for new and improved use of technology in higher education. The goal of the initiative is to create a virtual platform where students and experts can share knowledge and best practice.
The first webinar, titled ‘Current Challenges and Future Perspectives of Distance Education’, was held on Thursday 2 April and hosted by Professor Kyriakos Kouveliotis, Programmes and Partnership Director at BSBI.
The webinar focused on what are still considered obstacles to the widespread use of distance learning. It also looked at the endless opportunities new technologies such as augmented reality and artificial intelligence can create.
Streamed live on Go To Webinar, Ralf Hilgenstock, Founder and CEO of eLeDia, and Maria Wilke, Teacher Trainer and Learning Consultant at Goethe-Institut, also participated in the session.
During the webinar, the speakers engaged in a conversation touching on the key themes, also allowing the audience to interact live and ask questions.
Professor Kouveliotis said: “We launched this project to explore and promote the opportunities that distance learning can offer. We aim to initiate a conversation between students, institutions and the higher education industry to show how being innovative and using technology can and should be more than a temporary solution.”
