You may have heard or even attended Mahara Hui DE over the past years. Now there is Mahara Hui EU for the first time. H.D. Hirth from the Oskar-von-Miller-Schule in Germany shares information about this upcoming event:

Mahara Hui EU will take place for the first time from 30 November to 2 December 2017. It is being organized by the Mahara Hui DE team who wish to invite ePortfolio users from across Europe to the middle of Germany, Kassel, for this unconference.

The conference languages are English and German, but attendees are also free to offer their sessions in other languages if that is more suitable.

The event will be kicked off with hands-on sessions on 30 November 2017 followed by a shared dinner near the famous fairy tale Christmas market in the heart of Kassel.

The next day, Prof. Thomas Strasser (University of Vienna, Austria) will deliver the first keynote. It will be followed by a full day of sessions planned by the hui attendees. We encourage participants to offer sessions of all kinds of topics and experiences around education. Later in the day, there is the possibility to learn more about the history of the city on a bus tour to the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Hill Park Willhemshöhe before gathering for the conference dinner.

The third day of Mahara Hui EU will be kicked off by Prof. emeritus Gunter Dueck, an unorthodox thinker who worked at IBM for many years. His keynote will be followed by more sessions offered by attendees before Mahara Hui EU 2017 will come to a close in the late afternoon.

Mahara Hui EU is very affordable at 50€ per attendee for the main conference, 1-2 December 2017, incl. coffee breaks, lunch, and conference dinner. The workshops of the pre-conference on 30 November and the bus tour of Kassel are charged separately.

You will be able to register for the event on its website from mid-July 2017. We look forward to welcoming you to Kassel.

Should we try and get together again either virtually or face to face? Coming up to Easter is usually a good time.
