EDEN’s Eighth Research Workshop (EDENRW8) was held in Oxford on 27-28 October 2014
The theme and scope of EDENRW8 reflected the current challenges facing researchers and the intersection of their work with ?doing better things? for key stakeholders. EDENRW8 was very focussed on you the researcher and what you can learn from and with your peers. It took place in an intimate setting where researchers including postgraduate students could share research, connect with peers and have adequate time to discuss the challenges of their work. EDENRW8 was suitable for researchers and postgraduate students and particularly those wishing to actively connect with peers and debate Challenges for research into Open & Distance Learning: Doing Things Better: Doing Better Things.
The format of the event was key. This was not the usual conference program, the networking occurred as an essential aspect of the participant’s experience. Featuring small groups for deep dialogues, feedback on research, team symposia, ?research-speed-dating? papers, demonstrations, poster sessions, a connect lounge, informal sessions for meet the professor for early career and postgraduate researchers, world café style facilitation and presentations along with our resident keynotes provided a unique atmosphere.
