Please note

At the Stanford workshop you will meet a number of people who regularly visit the annual World Learning Summit. This conference adresses questions of the digitalization of society, from the perspective of learning and education. By this we include on-the-job learning and training for a more flexible, adaptive work market – a challenge we believe Nordic private and public sector needs to address more fundamentally. 

The World Learning Summit is a meeting place for academics, entrepreneurs, policymakers and planners, as well as business leaders and strategists. Over the years we have gathered a substantial porfolio of speakers, many of whom return year after year. So, for 2018 you may want to know that these speakers will also meet you in Kristiansand, June 6-8th at the WLS event: Keith Devlin, Michael Shanks, Donna Kidwell, Paco Nathan, Eilif Trondsen, and Cathy Casserly. 

There will, for sure, be many others, including a range of Nordic speakers from most of the Nordic countries.
