On 20 November, at Hotel Courtyard Marriott was held the Second National Distance Learning Conference, where GTU Professor Zaza Tsotniashvili (Faculty of Engineering Economic, Media Technology and Social Sciences) presented a paper on the topic: “Advantages of Blended Learning”.
It should be noted that Prof. Tsotniashvili had been participating in TOT Training Courses on Innovation Pedagogy within EU funded Erasmus+ project PRINTeL, organized by the project partner Graz FH Joanneum Gesellschaft (Austria) in November, 2018.
Prof. Zaza Tsotniashvili shared his experience and best practice gained through above mentioned TOT training courses to the Conference participants. About 80 representatives of defense and security as well as education sectors took part in the event. GTU Professor’s presentation about blended learning advantages based on the project PRINTeL activities became rather interesting to the audience.
