UWC RCN has been offered the unique opportunity to form a delegation to attend the third annual conference of EdTech Europe 2015 in London. The conference brings together established learning and education providers, innovators, disrupters, educators, policy makers and investors with an interest in European and global education technology. The 2015 one-day summit will be hosted at Kings Place in London on 18 June 2015.
The UWC (RCN) delegation will consist of Sir John Daniel (Chair of UWC International Board), David Sengeh (Sierra Leone – RCN, Harvard, MIT alumnus), Peter Verhille (UWC Director of International Fund Development), Larry (RCN’s Rektor) and Arne (RCN’s Director of Development). Sir John will be a key note speaker on MOOCs and David Sengeh has been invited to speak about the projects he contributes to – with EdTech Global Foundation partnering in 2015 with Global Minimum to Support Young Innovators in Kenya, Sierra Leone and South Africa.
RCN has been invited to provide two students to attend the conference and to be part of a student panel discussion – Zoe Harrington (Germany) and Thupten Dorji (Tibet) have been selected to represent RCN at the conference and will also be part of the UWC delegation at an event at the Norwegian Embassy with alumni and other London-based supporters as part of our set of events for the 20th anniversary of RCN.
