Guidance on a distance - Nordic challenges and solutions

Nordic Network for Adult Learning (NVL) wants to take a closer look into the experienced role and future opportunities and challenges regarding the use of ICT in career guidance services in the Nordic Region. The need for Distance tools are especially relevant in remote areas like Greenland and the Faroe Islands, but also applies to the Nordic Region  in general. 
The purpose of this seminar is to give an overview of Nordic experiences within this field and present different examples and experiences. Through this initiative  we want to establish a fundament for a new working group on this topic, and raise relevant questions for them to work with.
As a practitioner and expert in the field of guidance and couselling, or ICT – or both, you are invited to participate in this seminar. We hope it can give relevant input and new perspectives to your daily work, and that you’d like to contribute to  discussions by  sharing own experiences and perspectives on the topic.
