Yin Yoga is a passive and meditative practice that helps calm the body and mind, as well as recover from physical strain, stress, and busyness. In Yin Yoga, each posture/pose is held for 1-5 minutes, and props such as yoga blocks are used to find a comfortable position. The class is suitable for anyone looking to improve body mobility and increase tranquility and inner peace. The class takes place at the group exercise hall in Tamppi Arena at Hervanta campus.

FabLab Visit (Wednesday, June 7th, from 14:15 to 15:30)

FabLab provides digital manufacturing tools, facilities, and material resources for the university community. In FabLab, you can turn your ideas into prototypes. During the visit, you will have a closer look at FabLab, and there will also be an opportunity to make earrings or reflectors for yourself.

Flipping Spaces (Wednesday, June 7th, from 14:15 to 15:30 / Thursday, June 8th, from 12:15 to 13:30)

Flipping spaces at Hervanta campus! Come and explore the space solutions developed for the needs of blended learning and especially flipped learning. Learner-centeredness and collaborative learning do not exclude traditional teaching in terms of spatial solutions. How can spaces and their technology best serve diverse pedagogy today and in the future? These questions will be addressed by Markku Saarelainen, a work-life professor who has extensive experience with flipped learning in Finnish higher education. The presentation will be engaging and interactive.

During the TAMK lab tour, you will get to visit three laboratories at TAMK: Sote Virtual Lab, HyPedLab, and Textile Laboratory. Sote Virtual Lab, located on TAMK’s main campus, is a research, development, and innovation platform for TAMK’s services, the university community, and social and health care stakeholders. The lab focuses on researching and developing user- and human-centered technological solutions and well-being services, as well as strengthening the related expertise. HyPedLab offers insights into the Hybrid Education Experimentation Laboratory, where solutions for smooth hybrid teaching are tested and discussed from the perspectives of teachers, remote learners, and in-person learners. The Textile Laboratory was reintroduced for educational use with the new Textile and Material Engineering degree program. The program focuses on finding solutions to global issues in the textile industry from a sustainability and circular economy perspective. In this laboratory, you will have the opportunity to familiarize yourself with the equipment used in the degree program. The tour departs from Festia lobby at 14:15, and together, we will take the tram to TAMK. The hosts for the tour are Henna Koskimäki and Heidi Lehtonen. Welcome aboard!
