Event details

This event is for those involved in International Education of any sort, whether school, Further Education or Higher Education. It is an opportunity for participants to bring their research and ideas to an unconference to discuss the differences and similarities between global learning cultures.

The participants decide the topics, debates and presentations that will take place on the day. So bring your ideas and research and have your say, and perhaps even get an article started. An unconference uses an Open Space Technology and is a self-organising forum for idea sharing, networking, learning, speaking, demonstrating and interacting with others. This is based on the premise that any professional gathering including the audience have insights and expertise to share, and the Open Space Technology enables people to move from session to session, making connections and cross-pollinating across pieces of work. It is a space that will create energies and synergies from which hopefully amazing solutions will come.
