Research Workshop Starts in Two Weeks!
Together with our hosts and co-organisers, The Open University, we look forward to welcoming the participants of the 8th EDEN Research Workshop (EDENRW8) in Oxford. Prestigious keynote speakers will present on both challenges and solutions in research focusing on ICT-supported learning. Alongside this, 50 papers, 20 posters, 6 workshops and several inspiring debates ensure that the conference will be an extraordinary event.
You are invited to consult the detailed programme and, if you haven’t done so already, submit your registration to join the 140 colleagues from 34 countries who secured their places already.
Delegates with completed registration have access to the conference publications in electronic format that allows a thorough preparation for the lively sessions. The online registration remains open until 22 October.
