Main topics of the presentations and round table discussions were the advances in modern training strategies and technologies. In particular it was discussed how to incorporate newly available online learning tools, that enable highly interactive virtual classroom learning, into existing "face-to-face" training structures, i.e. how to achieve the ultimate goal of delivering an optimal blended learning.
