So, yet another year has passed and a new one approaching in lightning speed. This is perhaps the right time to reflect on some of the highlights of 2011! Since it seems we have had a busy year, this review will be posted in two posts to be able to really give a round-up on all what has happened on the Hedda blog.
In 2011, Hedda became 10 years old, we passed 500 posts on the blog already early 2011 and are now approaching 600, and we have by now almost 250 followers on Facebook! We said farewell to yet another successful year of Hedda Master programme graduates and said hello to our new students in 2011. From 2011, Hedda master programme also has a new partnership with the Eduardo Mondlane University (EMU), Mozambique.
In this post, we look back at Hedda10 anniversary activities, have an overview of the Hedda podcasts from 2011, summarise our thematic weeks, remind of the spotlights and chronicles of our alumni, students and staff, and highlight the guest bloggers we have had the privilege to work with.
Hedda anniversary celebration
We celebrated Hedda 10th anniversary in November with a one-day conference about university mergers. We had a fantastic list of international speakers, covering the whole range from Australia to Canada, and from China to Germany. We had the privilege to broadcast the whole conference live to all of you who were not able to attend in person. And, we have published all the sound files and the presentations on the Hedda website so if you missed out on some of the presentations – check them out! (more…)
