EDEN 2021 Virtual Annual Conference – UNED Madrid

“Gripped or freed by the pandemic? Lessons for the future of education”


EDEN is delighted to announce that in the 30th Anniversary year of the Association the Annual Conference will be hosted by the National Distance Education University UNED in Madrid, Spain, on 22-25 June 2021 and will be held online.
The gradual transition from traditional classroom-based education to online teaching and learning has been accelerated by the global crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The crisis has forced educators to reappraise their roles, professional practices and beliefs.

Not only does this conference provide attendees with the perfect opportunity to explore this range of topics, but it also provides us with a space to reflect upon the role that online and distance education will have after the pandemic. As noted in our webinar series #covid19 #onlinetogether Education in a time of a pandemic, fully online education on a global scale is unprecedented in the history of education. Today we are talking about the “new normal” and “future normal”. What will this future look like? How can EDEN members help to shape it and bring their insights to bear?
