Dear WERA Colleague and Friends
We hope that you and your loved ones are doing well and keeping safe given the current circumstances. WERA 2021 VIRTUAL FOCAL MEETING: EVENTSAIR VIRTUAL PLATFORM
As you are aware, due 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, and Red Transdisciplinar de Investigación Educativa (RETINDE) will have a virtual Focal Meeting in July 2021.
WERA is looking forward to the multiple opportunities and worldwide collaboration that a virtual meeting generates.
Using the EventsAir platform https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vHRpknv5XYM 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.
