Eduix, in collaboration with the Learners Corner Education Tech Hub organised a webinar about “Teachers Engagement and Strategies for Hybrid Schooling”. The webinar was designed to address teachers’ needs to enhace their own motivation in teaching in our current era of hybrid learning. The content aimed to support educators with strategies to thrive in the hybrid schooling environment.
The presenter, Ass. Prof. Chiara Zuanni, introduced the main points that one needs to take into account when developing a sustainable digital strategy for museums. Her presentation goes over the topics:
Why develop a digital strategy
How to start
What to include
How to evaluate it
Where to find more resources
She focused on the process of digitizing collections and fostering digital engagements, emphasizing why this is important according to current European policies as well. I cannot over-recommend the webinar, which you can access here!
For those who prefer a textual summary of her presentation, below you find some of the main points she highlighted.
March is a special month for Eduix: for the second year we will participate in the Education Leadership Forum organized by TAMK. This time, though, we are not only sponsoring the event, but we will highly contribute with its content. This year, the Forum will be part of the EYE ON TAMK event, which will happen between March 20th-24th.
The programme is full of food for thought and we will be immersed on discussions, presentations, workshops, and networking events about (Re)connecting Professional Networks in Education.
It is proven that resilience and leadership are important factors of future development of businesses. They will be discussed in the webinar organized by the Nordic-Asean Business Forum (NABD) with support from Business Finland.
Representing Eduix, at 10h35 I will give a short introduction about Eduix, and contribute with my perspectives on how a diverse team in a Finnish company benefits its business, what are the challenges of being an international talent (for me and the company), my contribution to the international market, and my message for Finnish companies in hiring international talents.
The annual IT days of Finnish HEIs was held this year in Lahti on the joint campus of LAB University of Applied Sciences and LUT University. The days offered a wide range of presentations on current IT topics with the theme “IT with a purpose”, bringing together around 500 IT professionals from higher education institutions, from management to support staff from all the corners of Finland. During the first day of the event, I gave a presentation about how Finland can use learning technologies to support building education ecosystems. Below you find a summary of what we discussed there!
The objective of the panel discussion was to share experiences and working practices around EdTech issues, share ways how African countries are supporting ICT-oriented education and explore possibilities in regional cooperation. Below you find my contribution to the panel session based on the Recommendation Paper written in collaboration with Dr. Altti Lagstedt during the Edupreneurs project.

Eduix participated in the X International Symposium on Research, organized by the Colombian Association of Higher Education Institutions with Professional Technical, Technological or University training (ACIET). The event happened from 29th September until 1st October and addressed the theme “Research Experiences in the Age of Pandemic”. In the event, Eduix presented how our edtech solutions has helped Finnish Higher Education Institutions (HEI) continue running their research endeavors during the Covid-19 pandemic.
The paradigm shift in education
From a global perspective, we all know that many HEIs have faced increased dropout rates due to students’ financial difficulties and inefficient virtual learning environments in the past year. Nevertheless, HEIs with the the appropriate virtual tools were able to keep educational processes running online (synchronous and asynchronous), identify students at risk and retain them, maintain staff efficiency, reduce costs, and attract more students.
