I suspect that by the time Friday rolls around that I will have a real backlog of items to post, so today may be a bit busier than normal…

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 improvedSynergy 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.
