Here is a note on the upcoming Spring Roundtable on the globalization of learning, hosted by Future Learning Lab, HStar Institute Stanford University and Zephyr Institute in Palo Alto. The Roundtable will ideally organize between 50 100 people from Silicon Valley and invited guests. The event is booked for a Stanford venue, but we are still keeping a small opening for change of days – since we still hope to get a commercial sponsor for the event.
As it now looks, the plenary session will be hosted by Oddgeir Tveiten and Matt Bowman. A number of keynotes will be given in rapid sequence, with a follow up Q/A roundtable discussion, which we hope to stream and otherwise make available.
Keynoters will be: Keith Devlin, Michael Shanks, Donna Kidwell and marti Hearst.
