Institutions dedicated to the preservation and safeguarding of our cultural heritage, such as museums, serve as invaluable assets for the enhancement of mental health, overall well-being, social cohesion, and cultural enlightenment within our society. The intrinsic value of culture for the betterment of our communities has never been more evident than in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic. During this global crisis, those fortunate enough to have access to the internet have increasingly turned to online cultural offerings provided by both public and private museums.Continue reading “Cultivating Sustainability in Museums’ Digital Renaissance”
In today’s increasingly digital world, the adoption of technology has transformed various aspects of our lives. One area that has seen a significant shift is education, particularly in the management of learning and teaching processes. However, despite increased education digitalization, supervision and management of thesis work has been one core task that is still lagging behind.
In our recent work developed in the international market, when we start having meaningful and open conversations with potential customers about Wihi, our platform for the management and supervision of thesis work, many academic staff bring us a concern, derived from digitalization misconceptions, that Wihi may decrease face-to-face (f2f) interactions between students and supervisors. In this blog post, we will debunk this assumption and explore how thesis work digitalization with Wihi actually enhances and fosters supervisor-student interactions, both f2f and remotely.
Dispelling the Misconception
Contrary to popular belief, the introduction of a platform for thesis supervision does not inherently imply that students and supervisors will limit their interactions solely to the digital interface. It is essential to understand that the platform serves as a supportive tool rather than a replacement for personal engagement. By embracing digitalization, we can address existing challenges and facilitate more effective communication and collaboration.Continue reading “Digitalizing thesis work does not reduce supervisor-student interaction – on the contrary!”
