OF WERA 2020+1 VIRTUAL FOCAL MEETING
response to the enduring international uncertainty of the COVID-19
pandemic, the World Education Research Association (WERA), and Sociedad
Espanola de Pedagogía (SEP) in conjunction with Universidad de
Santiago de Compostela, have decided to revert from a
place-based WERA Focal Meeting to an online conference in July 2021.
These partners understand that the change to a virtual format may
result in some challenges, but the welfare of our partners, members,
presenters and participants remains our utmost priority.
Although WERA would have preferred an in-person meeting in the
beautiful Santiago de Compostela, Spain, the uncertainty that remains
around the COVID-19 pandemic meant that this is not feasible. Not only
would a place-based meeting in the current circumstances be difficult
to plan, but would also compromise the safety and well-being of all of
our attendees. However, WERA is looking forward to the multiple
opportunities and worldwide collaboration that a virtual meeting
generates and is exploring a wide range of creative, interactive and
innovative formats and events to ensure a rigorous and engaging
experience for all.
All accepted submissions (including Invited Symposia) for the WERA
2020+1 Focal Meeting are considered as valid for the WERA 2021 Virtual
Focal Meeting. Accepted submissions will retain a position in the
programme and a paid registration fee will be valid for the WERA 2021
Virtual Focal Meeting.
Registration rates for the WERA 2021 Virtual Focal meeting will remain
as published. Registration for the virtual conference will also include
one-year individual WERA membership .
