First EuMIGS Winter Workshop on Knowledge Transfer

20 students from seven partner universities participated in the first EuMIGS Winter Workshop, held at the University of A Coruña from 27 February to 1 March.

The workshop theme was “Knowledge Transfer”, which refers to the ways in which academic research can be made accessible through various formats to a wider audience beyond the academic community. During the three days of the workshop, students received training in the production of scientific podcasts and created their own podcasts. The participants of the EuMIGS Winter Workshop learned about the visualization of qualitative and quantitative data through images and graphs as a means of conveying and simplifying complex ideas, and as a tool for data analysis during the research process. A further powerful example of telling research in an accessible way is the documentary “Si ka badu, ka ta biradu”, which was presented during the workshop. The documentary is based on the research of social scientists at the University of A Coruña and produced in collaboration with the community they have conducted research with.

Students enrolled in the EuMIGS Double Degree programme and a joint blended mobility course on refugee reception participated in the Winter Workshop. The virtual component of the joint blended mobility course, consisting of online lectures and interactive and internationally mixed online seminars, took place during the autumn semester 2022.

The objective of joint online activities such as the EuMIGS Lecture Series and joint blended mobility courses is to offer possibilities of transnational learning and peer-to-peer exchange also to students who do not wish to or are not able to study abroad for one or two semesters. Yet, face-to-face meetings such as the EuMIGS Winter Workshop in addition to virtual forms of exchange are crucial spaces for debate and the formation of lasting networks.
