On 26 April, 2019 XX international scientific conference „Human values in the Digital Age” was held at Turiba University. This year the conference organisor was the Faculty of International Tourism.
The main topic discussed at the conference was the pros and cons of digitization looking at its various aspects – impact on business, the labour market, the knowledge provided by universities, interpersonal relations, etc. An afternoon session was devoted to language learning/teaching aspects as well.
A project team member of Turiba University Anda Komarovska introduced the audience with the projects the Language Department has been implementing recently. The project “Culture and Languages for All” was introduced as well. Anda demonstrated the project learning platform which caused real interest by language teachers of other Universities – both from Latvia and Lithuania.
