Folkemødet 2018 at Bornholm is just around the corner and at CanopyLAB we can’t wait to be inspired, share our ideas and get involved in formal and informal discussions about topics such as AI, the future of learning, eLearning, women in tech, start-ups and much more.
Our vision is that everyone should be able to learn only what they want and need gain the competences and knowledge necessary for them in a way that they find most effective and enjoyable.
At CanopyLAB, we have made it our mission to change the way we learn online by enabling everyone to learn in the way that suits them. Right now, most online learning companies have a one-size-fit-all offering wherein every learner, regardless of their levels, needs and preferences, is given the same materials and is required to submit the same kinds of exercises in a course. Our vision is that everyone should be able to learn only what they want and need gain the competences and knowledge necessary for them in a way that they find most effective and enjoyable.
Attending events such as Folkemødet provides us with the opportunity to meet and discuss with some of the greatest and most progressive minds when it comes to the future of learning, AI, machine learning and the requirements for skills in the future.
If you’d like to have CEO Sahra-Josephine or anyone else from the company at your event as a speakers or in a panel, please get in touch as soon as possible.
Our days are getting booked rather quickly, so if you’d like to have CEO Sahra-Josephine or anyone else from the company at your event as a speakers or in a panel, please get in touch as soon as possible.
At Folkemødet, CanopyLAB is represented by CEO Sahra-Josephine Hjorth, our NGO and Human Rights specialist Ulla Bisgaard, our education and partnerships specialist Sørine Vesth Rasmussen as well as our business advisor Mie Skjødt Sørensen.
You are also more than welcome to stop by and hear our point of view on the future of learning in the panel discussions, where we are already booked. We are still getting invitations, but the following provide a brief overview on where to find us at Folkemødet 2018:
Sahra-Josephine Hjorth is discussing the future of eLearning in a panel organized by University College Absalon with rector Camilla Wang, chairman of the Carlsberg Foundation Flemming Besenbacher, associate professor Henrik Tarp Vang and Rune Heiberg Hansen from the Danish Accreditation Institution.
Location: Professionshøjskolernes Strandbar
Topic: What will eLearning look like in 2025. What are the challenges of the eLearning we know today? How do we create eLearning that matches the needs of the future? Is eLearning even the answer to the challenges ahead?
Sahra-Josephine Hjorth will share our thoughts and ideas on the skills required for the jobs of the future. The panel discussion is hosted by Aarhus University and we are pleased to be among a strong panel consisting of rector Camilla Wang as well as professor Ole Sejer Iversen and associate professor Jens Erik Kristensen who are both at Aarhus University.
Location: Aarhus University’s research ship
Topic: The discussion is based on the rapid developments the workforce is undergoing, which influence a changing need for skills and competencies. This challenge requires lifelong learning and attention from educational planners. But what should educational planners and organisations pay attention to? And what are the competencies and skills required of the future of work?
Sahra-Josephine Hjorth will participate in a panel discussion about women and entrepreneurship, where she will shed light on her ideas and experiences as a female entrepreneur – and a female entrepreneur in an IT-company. Other confirmed panelists include incredibly talented and inspiring entrepreneurs such as Carla Cammilla Hjort (founder of Rebel Agency, Trailerpark Festival and CEO Space10) and Christine Larsen (Ailefo). The discussion will be moderated by Anna Sophia Hermansen.
Location: Dansk Iværksætter Forening (D-I-F and Ase Union)
Topic: Why are there so few female entrepreneurs? Research shows that companies started by women produce 63 % more value than when compared to when men are the founders. So why are there only 25 % of Danish companies with female founders? Despite Danish women being among the most active on the employment market, Denmark is placed in the middle of scales measuring amount of female entrepreneurs. Is it the gender holding Danish women back? What changes are necessary to positively influence the current situation and increase the amount of female entrepreneurs? Does it require policy changes?
