On March 17, more than 200 Viktor Rydberg Schools teachers assembled at VRG Jarlaplan for an afternoon of lectures and workshops –  led by VR teachers, for VR teachers.

The afternoon began wit an inspiring lecture from Alastair Creelman.  Alastair works as a specialist in E-learning

at Linnaeus University in Kalmar.  He spoke about the many dimensions of instructional design when considering online, face-to-face and blended learning experiences.  He shared many great resources for how to design effective learning with “smarter collaboration“.

Typical for each session was an engaged leader willing to share his/her idea about learning, and active participants interested in understanding more.

Perhaps even more so than quality professional development workshops was the inspiring networking going on in the formal and informal discussions in the hallways.

About kristylundstrom

I currently work as the Managing Director of Viktor Rydberg Schools. I am a student of learning. I am interested to see where it happens, when it happens, and how it happens. I am also a math and computer science teacher. I have lived in Belgium and in the USA. I really appreciate my multi-cultural environment - I believe it adds dynamics to our school.
