The last couple of weeks I haven't been blogging and tweeting as much as people are used to see from me. The reason for this, is that I'm extremely busy with setting up the Delft Extension School and also organising the EdX Conference FutureEDU.
For the first time this conference for all EdX Consortium members and partners will be outside of the Boston area and it happens to be at my university. So for me the job to organise together with our office for event solutions.
Next week 200 participants will arrive in Delft to participate in an interesting programme about MOOC, online education, future developments and transformation of campus education.
We have participants from 50 institutions from 17 countries from all around the world (except Latin America). About 50 people are from Europe (excluding TU Delft): Belgium, France, Germany, Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, Switserland and the UK.
On Thursday the Dutch Minister of Education, Jet Bussemaker, will open the conference. The closing keynote on Friday will be delivered by George Siemens. In between we have many interesting presentations, panel discussions, round tables and time to talk with collegues from around the world.
I'm really looking forward to meet everyone in Delft. It will be a great conference in a beautiful building.
