The last day started with Tommi Moilanen and his workshop focused on Distance Teaching Media Students. Tommi shared how he has been teaching his Filming and Lighting course through streaming and online tools. The conversation focused on how to teach from home, and what digital tools there are. A big topic was how the theoretical teaching is easy but that pratical teaching is harder to do online.
Future of Media Education hosted by Timo Kivikangas was an interesting panel discussion. The discussion went through various topics like supporting students during this situation, new ways of creating content, utilizing tech, and more international collaboration. They also talked about how the future of culture and media could look.
