Education focused events: a review of established wisdom and future focused trends

Share on LinkedIn More

On behalf on the ICCA France Benelux Chapter and our Education Committee, we are pleased to announce and invite you for the first session of the year: Education focused events: a review of established wisdom and future-focused trends on Thursday 25th February at 10:00- 11:00 CET.  

What can you expect from the session? 

We will provide a healthy dose of inspiration by experts in enabling technologies and online didactics to broaden our perspectives about how people learn, and which technologies we need to adopt. Together we will attempt to look into the future, keeping the human as the centre of events (human-centric approach) while considering what kinds of events could be possible. We will take stock of learnings from the COVID-19 period, and decide what we will leave behind, and what we will carry with us into that future. Best practices & food for thought will be our main takeaways.

We will be taking questions during the session. Still, we also encourage you to submit your questions in advance when registering and we will address those questions in the panel discussion.

The session will be moderated by Idoia Rodes, President MCI Benelux, who will lead a conversation with two experts from the education field:
