"The horse" concept presented

We had the honor to present the concept of "The horse" at two conferences.

Eliane Suter delivered speeches.

The first event was the "bili-Erfa-Tagung 2018: digital und analog", a cantonal meeting at the Zurich University of teacher education (PHZH) and the 2nd took place at the national wide event "Forum de la maturité professionnelle 2018" in Martigny (VS) organized by IFFP (Institute fédéral des hautes études en formation professionnelle).
