Future challenges in learning and knowledge transfer

The project Nordic Knowledge on the Web will organize a conference on November 24, 2011 in Vaasa, Finland. It is possible to follow the conference via Adobe Connect, too. My presentation in the conference will be about social media in higher education and business, and what we can learn from each other.

Conference program seems very interesting:

The project “Nordic knowledge on the web” (NKW) is a collaborative project between universities in Vaasa, Umeå and Bodö. The goal is to create, market and run a Web-based customer knowledge center containing lectures, disputations, animations, debates and practical applications and related educational materials around.
