Report from “Living with Learning – VA Day, 2004”
Camilla Modéer, Secretary General of VA (Public & Science), welcomed everyone, thanked President Eskil Franck of the Stockholm Institute of Education for letting the VA Day take place on his campus and then turned the podium over to him.
According to Dr. Franck, teacher training, which his institute specializes in, is among the most important bridges between researchers and the public, and so are teachers themselves. It is important that teachers work in the spirit of science and teach children a critical attitude. He hoped the afternoon would embody a spirit of dialogue.
