World Education Research Association Focal Meeting 2020+1
Networking Education: Diverse Realities, Common Horizons
Together with the 17th Spanish & 9th Ibero-American Education Conference









ANNOUNCEMENT OF WERA 2020+1 VIRTUAL FOCAL MEETING




In 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.

WERA is looking forward to the multiple opportunities and worldwide collaboration that a virtual meeting generates. Using the EventsAir platform will enable us to host a virtual conference that is rigorous and engaged. Prior to the conference we will send participants detailed guidelines on how to best make use of the platform capabilities. We will notify registered participants of online training opportunities where they will be able to familiarise themselves with the platform in order to easily navigate virtual presentations, chair-roles and networking opportunities. Throughout the conference there will be live IT-support.



All accepted submissions (including Invited Symposia) for the WERA 2020+1 Focal Meeting are considered as valid for the WERA 2020+1 Virtual Meeting. Accepted submissions will retain a position in the programme and a paid registration fee will be valid for the WERA 2020+1 Virtual Meeting.
