If you had told me, five years ago, that I would be riding a Segway, in to a 2000 cinema, in Copenhagen, to do a presentation, … I would have laughed. Thankfully our audience today laughed with me.
Uddannelsesforum (Education Forum), a major symposium which attracts more than 2,000 key people from the entire educational sector in Denmark including policy makers, teachers, ICT coordinators. Uddannelsesforum is organised by UNI-C, The Danish IT Centre for Education and Research. The event is by far the largest event of this kind in Denmark.
This year, The Uddannelsesforum is organised alongside The EMINENT 2010 Conference which is happening, this year, in Denmark. It is the tenth EMINENT, after successful events in Amsterdam, Lisbon, Stockholm, Geneva, Prague, Paris, Brussels, Rome and Vilnius.
The event has both a commercial exhibition and several seminars, with the focus on the seminars. Each year Uddannelsesforum attracts approximately 2,000 key persons from the entire education sector such as leaders, ICT consultants, librarians, teachers, technicians, consultants, advisers and administrative staff. They all meet for two inspirational days with focus on topical problems and visions for the future of education.
The professional programme contains 40 sessions with 90 speakers. It is a combination of many different kinds of lecture including key-notes and workshops from Denmark and from abroad.
The aim of Uddannelsesforum is to be “the largest and best venue for professional mediation of and discussion about educational policy initiatives and objectives, research, debate and experiences and commercial distribution of relevant products, learning materials, ICT services, etc”.
Uddannelsesforum gives educators and their suppliers a unique opportunity to meet.
The event is a unique opportunity to meet, make new contacts and discuss common ICT initiatives that foster the development of education in Europe. This year a special emphasis is placed on bringing teachers and policy makers together.
