A BEST Symposia on Education is an event designed to allow students, from different nationalities and backgrounds, to have relevant contributions to the development of education.
Asynchronous Education is a form of education in which instruction and learning do not occur at the same time or place. This type of learning had been discovered years ago but it became more popular due to the world pandemic. It is one of the digital education types and is based on asynchronous communication between teacher and student. We have all experienced this kind of education while receiving some materials or instructions via email or while watching educational tutorials on YouTube.
The aim of this symposium is to gather different students’ opinions and experiences about asynchronous education in order to make it better. We would also like to evaluate the results of these experiences and come up with some solutions on how to improve this type of learning so that it would be more useful to european students.
Wroclaw is one of Poland's biggest cities with one of the best universities in the country. It is located in the South-West part of the country close to Germany and Czech borders. There is Odra - the second biggest polish river crossing the town and that is also why Wroclaw is known for its countless bridges (there are more bridges than in Amsterdam!). And most importantly, almost a quarter of Wroclaw citizens are students! This means that Wroclaw provides everything we students need to live, learn and party.
Also the extraordinary history of this city is being constantly enriched by prestigious scientic, cultural and athletic events – the examples are becoming the 2016 European Capital of Culture, hosting the World Games 2017 or being a partial host of the EURO 2012.
