Conference Roskilde Denmark
Children and Youth on the Edge: Collaborative innovations in education
The 16-17th of november 2017
University College Absalon, Denmark, is happy to host the conference Children and Youth on the Edge in partnership with The Taos Institute, USA and UngInvest AIB, Norway the 16-17th of November 2017
This conference is an International Learning Festival: Sharing, exploring and creating new ideas and practices
This conference is dedicated to the welfare of the many at-risk students in our educational systems
- special needs children
- those from broken or dysfunctional homes
- the impoverished
- the alienated and unmotivated
Many struggle, many fail, many are marginalized, and many will never complete their education. This conference focuses especially on collaborative innovations in theory and practice for improving the conditions and chances of these students.
How can we cross boundaries between teachers and the taught, school and home, care-givers and those they serve, and local schools and national policy makers?
How can we expand the domain in which we work with each other and not on each other?
The conference is for teachers, scholars, school administrators, care-giving professionals, representatives from council and government - and students alike!
We look forward to seeing you in Roskilde
