What is a Technical Seminar?
The Technical Seminars, that the LOESCHE Center for Technical Training & Documentation carries out worldwide in cooperation with LOESCHE subsidiaries, are so-called ‘open seminars’. This means, everyone can register and take part after accepting the conditions of participation and paying a seminar fee. The seminars are aimed primarily at customers and suppliers of the cement industry and encourage the knowledge transfer - the focus is on the exchange of expert knowledge and above all practical experiences.
The maximum number of participants is restricted to 50 persons per seminar to guarantee a high degree of interaction and an intensive exchange of knowledge. Detailed seminar documents enable the participants to follow the lectures and take notes. These documents serve as source of reference subsequent to the seminar. Every year, the Training Center also invites independent lecturers from science, research, and other sectors of the industry. This guarantees objectivity and a broader range of issues.
In addition to the classical lectures, the Center for Technical Training & Documentation attaches great importance to modern, didactically useful methods of interaction. One already very popular part of the seminars is almost a tradition now, the so-called ‘World Café’. It includes moderated, interactive short workshops, in which experts invite all participants to informal discussions in a casual atmosphere with coffee and cake (therefore the name ‘World Café’). These ‘World Café’ tables are always sociable rounds of talks, where everybody discusses a lot, makes new contacts and exchanges experiences intensively.
