ISE2019 – Higher Education Conference

#ISE2019 at the RAI in Amsterdam was a great opportunity for Dom Pates and myself to run our ‘Pedagogy of Space’ workshop to a large international audience, as part of the Higher Education Conference.

The half day conference was organised and sponsored by AVIXA, in cooperation with SCHOMS and EUNIS
