About the Event

The current pandemic reminded us of the importance of human interaction for education, but also forced us to be creative. Before we all go ‘back to normal’, let’s act to strengthen the innovations that make the actual teaching more about interaction – and thus more effective and more fun – in the years to come. In this online Meet & Eat, I will share my thoughts on the future of education and where I believe we can go from here.
