2021 marks EDEN’s 30th Anniversary year, therefore the Madrid Conference will be special to all of us in many regards. embracing our traditional values for three decades and the EDEN community’s future endeavours and directions in the field of distance and e-learning in the hopefully not so far, post-pandemic “new normal”. 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 pandemic.
One of the highlights of the Conference programme is a special R4C Workshop on how schools can be supported in using self-reflection tools to understand their current position and build on the results to implement a concrete set of actions helping teachers and redefining education in the new normal.
The participation is free
