REN studietur til New York 11.-15. oktober 2009

Temaet på årets studietur er ”Best of e-Learning” og i år har vi konsentrert oss mye om social networking, Virtual Training, Simulations and Games. Men som vanlig blir det litt av hvert så alle skal være sikre på at de finner noe som gjør turen så fantastisk og verdifull at det blir et høydepunkt. Og ikke minst muligheten til å møte kollegaer fra Norge og ha mange gode diskusjoner gjennom uken og en kveld hvor vi inviterer alle foredragsholderne til en sammenkomst og muligheten for erfaringsutveksling.
På programmet står besøk med presentasjoner hos blant annet FN, New York University og Colombia University og presentasjoner fra Kognito, SocialText, Deloitte og Undertone Networks.

Vi har reservert rom fra lørdag 10. oktober til torsdag 15. oktober på Affinia Shelburne Hotel, 303 Lexington Avenue til en spesialpris av $ 199 + hotellskatt pr. natt.  Dersom du ønsker å ankomme tidligere eller bli lenger bør vi har beskjed snarest mulig.

Vi håper at så mange som mulig har anledning til å bli med på det som erfaringsmessig er årets høydepunkt av studieturer.
