Acknowledging achievements at the conference:
To celebrate and multiply the impact of some of the hosting projects’ most successful activities the first two days of the conference will highlight an impressive spectrum of different open schooling and teacher training initiatives and accomplishments. Complementing the ODS virtual acknowledgements expressed via multiple online channels, we’ll also be awarding our best teachers face to face for their professional achievements and contributions to their schools’ development.
During the third, Scholarly Contributions Day, academics and professionals will present their research and validated practices. Based on its continuing success, the EDEN “Synergy” strand will be weaved into the programme in Athens as well, adding a “project magnet” effect to the conference and enabling new partnerships to be created and old ones to be strengthened and expanded.
