LATINA Africa Summer School rescheduled for 2012. New Winter School in China.
This is to inform all our friends and partners that the LATINA Africa Summer School will be postponed from the summer of 2011. We hope, and strongly believe and expect, that we may realize this event in the spring or summer of 2012 instead.
LATINA/lab is an R&D laboratory at the Learning Center of Oslo University College. During an initial meeting in conjunction with the IFLA conference in Gothenburg, Sweden in August 2010 we were invited to conduct the LATINA Africa Summer School at Makerere University in Kampala the following summer. Since last fall we have been eagerly preparing for this event.
But we have come to realize that important prerequisites are not sufficiently secured at this time of writing. For this reason we have decided on a new roadmap for upcoming LATINA courses and training programs during the 2011-2012 period.
We are very happy, though, to report to all our partners and interested parties that we are firmly committed to implement the LATINA Summer Course in Kampala and look forward to do so in 2012.
This must, of course, be based on renewed invitations and agreements by the partners.
Together with our LATINA/lab partners at Hainan Normal University in China we have furthermore decided to conduct at LATINA Winter School at this university in December 2011. In order to strengthen preparations and long term competence building we invite several participants from Uganda to take part in this event.
We look very much forward to see old as well as new friends and colleagues in Kampala in 2012 and also in Haikou in December!
