[EDEN-News] EDEN 2015 Annual Conference, Barcelona – Reminder before Christmas

From last week’s inbox…

Circular head

EDEN 2015 Annual Conference: #EDEN15
Call for Contributions – Deadline: 31 January

Barcelona, 9-12 June 2015

CONFERENCE SCOPE | THEMES | CALL | SUBMISSION | PARTNER & VENUE | DEADLINES

Towards the end of the calendar year, with the peaceful winter holidays approaching, we hope you will find time and inspiration to consider how you could add value to the content offerings of the EDEN 2015 Annual Conference.

Conference Vision

Like the city of Barcelona, the EDEN conferences treasure their traditions whilst they also welcome and advocate modern solutions, innovation and creativity. The high quality content, insightful and inspirational keynote speeches, recognition of excellence by the Best Research Paper Award will continue to be cornerstones of the conference in 2015.

By way of contrast, capitalising on the encouraging participant feedback from EDENRW8, the new, more interactive and engaging session formats – like the speed-dating, homegroups and fishbowl – will feature in the programme, and delegates will be able to enjoy an improved Synergy Strand.
EDEN also aims to reach out to a new generation of educators, and will achieve this by offering support to young scholars in 2015 to facilitate their participation in the conference.

Follow and use our #EDEN15 hashtag and prepare to join the Community face to face in the inspiring city of Barcelona!

Call for Contributions

Submissions that relate to the Conference Scope and to the Conference Themes are invited in the following formats: paper, poster, workshop and demonstration.

If your initiative is not mature enough to be presented as a comprehensive research paper but has potential for development and/or achievements as project work in progress, we highly recommend you to submit in synergy category.

2015 ePortfolio & Identity Conference

The 2015 ePortfolio & Identity Conference (ePIC) will be organised in conjunction with the EDEN Annual Conference, taking place in the Catalonia Barcelona Plaza Hotel on 8-10 June. A joint day will enhance the sharing of experiences and networking. Discount will be available for delagates registering to both events.
