Disseminating mentoring guidelines in the Finnish Interactive technology in Education conference network
There is a popular and nationally well-known conference every year in Finland about the themes of digital education and learning. In 2022 the Interactive Technology in Education conference is held in October (https://itk-konferenssi.fi/en/). The research team from the University of Helsinki has there a presentation about the mentoring models and methods developed in the iHub4Schools project (see the abstract in Finnish).
The conference also organizes pre-conference webinars for a wider audience; they are advertised in various Facebook groups for Finnish educational experts in the field, reaching over a thousand members. On the 7th of September, we presented the iHub4Schools outcomes in one of those webinars. There were about 25 interested participants present in the webinar, but the recording of it is shared through the conference website for anybody to watch afterwards (see https://itk-konferenssi.fi/en/webinaarit/webinaaritallenteet).
