Come study to Brno!

Our department is happy to host students with different study backgrounds and interests, from librarianship and information science to service design, data analytics, and educational technology.

English courses at KISK

The Department of Information and Library Studies focuses on an interdisciplinary approach to the field of information science.

The focus of the teaching of international students is on topics related to information literacy issues (Process and Tools of Data Visualization, Disinformation Pandemic: How to Fight It, Literature review as a reserch method) and technology in education (MOOC: learning online, Creativity learning and information literacy), especially concerning work in immersive collaborative virtual reality (VR in Humanities, VR Research Project). This connection will allow students to gain practical experience, develop the necessary competencies for working with technology in education and strengthen their research skills. We are looking for ways to think about classical topics in new ways and to implement new technologies (Design as a source of innovation: from theory to facilitation, Data science lab) in education, memory institutions and the knowledge economy.

However, incoming students can draw on the university's wide range of courses to pursue their educational goals.
