Peda-forum 2012 conference “Handprints”
Universities are full of excellent teachers, students, educational leaders and developers. Each of them leaves a mark on the future experts who lead us towards a better world. Society sets its own challenges on university education. The pace of change is fast and complex. How can we develop better education on a sustainable basis in a situation of constant change? Tune in to discuss, reflect and share ideas with other educational experts.
