EDEN 2021 Annual Conference June – Call Open

Another call for proposals that may be of interest to some readers.

EDEN 2021 Virtual Annual Conference – UNED Madrid

“Gripped or freed by the pandemic? Lessons for the future of education”

CALL IS OPEN!

EDEN is delighted to announce that in the 30th Anniversary year of the Association the Annual Conference will be hosted by the National Distance Education University UNED in Madrid, Spain, on 22-25 June 2021 and will be held online.

With regard to restrictions due to COVID-19, we have also taken into account the good experiences with the EDEN 2020 Virtual Annual Conference, the EDEN 11th Research Workshop, including two PhD Symposia and our spring ‘Education in time of a pandemic’ webinar series which we resumed in autumn under the title ‘Education in time of a new normal’. Meanwhile, EDEN is prepared to realise the event partly in-person in safe and healthy circumstances.

The gradual transition from traditional classroom-based education to online teaching and learning has been accelerated by the global crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The crisis has forced educators to reappraise their roles, professional practices and beliefs.

EDEN has a long history of supporting educators in online and distance education, providing a forum for discussion, learning, and refinement of best practices in this area. This pandemic has been no exception.

This year’s conference is intended as a continuation of the efforts of EDEN to support educators by providing a space to explore the issues and insights that have emerged during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Not only does this conference provide attendees with the perfect opportunity to explore this range of topics but it also provides us with a space to reflect upon the role that online and distance education will have after the pandemic. As noted in our webinar series #covid19 #onlinetogether Education in a time of a pandemic, fully online education on a global scale is unprecedented in the history of education. Today we are talking about the “new normal” and “future normal”.

What will this future look like? How can EDEN members help to shape it and bring their insights to bear?
