Date Friday, Dec 7 Time – Room Köpenick II/III
Norway, one of the most highly digitalised places in the world, has developed a range of strategies that includes ensuring that adults have the skills demanded in a technology-driven society and addressing the needs of people whose knowledge acquired in the formal education system has become obsolete. Together, in this Learning Café, let’s find some meaningful solutions.
