About the Conference





The WERA 2020 Focal Meeting will be held in Santiago de Compostela, Spain, from 1st to 3rd July 2020.  The Meeting is an integral part of the 17th Spanish & 9th Ibero-American Education Conference, organized by the Spanish Pedagogical Society (SEP) and the University of Santiago de Compostela.


The Spanish Pedagogical Society is one of the oldest education science societies in the world. It was created in 1906 and later re-founded in 1949. Since that year, it has published the journal Bordon, Revista de Pedagogia, with its four issues yearly

The Spanish Education Conference, organized by the SEP, has been held every four years without interruption since 1959. In the year 2000 it became the Spanish and Ibero-American Education Conference. Since 2008, the Ibero-American Conference is held every two years, alternating between an Ibero-American city and a Spanish city, in this case jointly with the Spanish Conference. The last two Conferences were held in Madrid (July 2016) and Buenos Aires (August 2018).

The main theme of the 17th Spanish & 9th Ibero-American Education Conference and the WERA 2020 Focal Meeting will be Networking Education: Diverse Realities, Common Horizons. This motto represents an opportunity for reflection and proposal of shared action from diverse historical and cultural contexts, although linked by idiosyncratic connections, which form an emerging scenario.
