Open 2009: “Learning by Cheating”

Thursday, November 5th, 2009

If you are interested in to “understand the recent shift from an industrially organized era to an era of networks and open information and social production” join us in the Open 2009 symposium, taking place right now in Helsinki and online.

We have a video stream and the videos of the talks will be online in the conference site for a later use.

Threaded backchannel is in Qaiku.

Symposium Program.

The first keynote is given by Yrjö Engeström. His topic is “The Educational Value of Learning by Cheating” – and he is not joking.

Engeström is most well known as one of the founders of (Scandinavian) activity theory.
