With already 240 confirmed registrations, this will be an impressive week. The interesting programme is packed with lectures and activities with participants from around the globe in Tampere. Last seats are still available, and we invite especially policy makers and educational leaders from outside EU to join the week to promote the development of change agency in education as well as (re)building the networks and finding new platforms for collaboration.
This year, Educational Leadership forum joins Eye on TAMK to create more opportunities for collaboration and ventures. Let´s discover future opportunities together, build project application initiatives and seize funding opportunities as we get acquainted with the latest trends, policies, and innovations that both Finnish and global education has to offer.
Seize the opportunity to grow your professional network and make new contacts effectively. During the first day of the event Speed Networking, a meeting format designed to accelerate contacts who share similar professional interests is organized on-site both for Teaching and Educational Leadership track participants.
The Educational Leadership track participants of Eye on TAMK 2023 will have the unique opportunity to learn about Finnish education. They will visit Finnish pre-primary and basic education schools, high schools and vocational education schools for young people and adults as well as other innovative education-related places in the Tampere region. This is something available only to those who register in the Leadership track. The participation fee difference is to cover some of the expenses due to the visits and the transportation to and from locations. (link to Educational Leadership subpage)
