2017, Network 1 had a total of 110 presentations, including 81 individual paper presentations and 19 symposium papers in 6 symposia within the programme of 35 sessions (plus one more session for the NW meeting). Compared to the previous years, the number of papers has been slightly decreasing (140/2015; 117/2016; 110/2017). The number symposia has been at about the same level (6/2015; 8/2016; 6/2017). As usual, most of the participants came from the Northern and the Western parts of Europe and from Central Europe.
In the 2017 conference, we did collaboration with NW 23 "Policy Studies and Politics of Education" through organizing a double symposia about the "Policies and Politics of Teacher Education". This double symposia was very successful, and new collaborations and projects seemingly emerged out of this.
Since 2016, there has been discussion about a slight change of the name and scope of the network. The present name of the network 1. "Continuing Professional Development: Learning for Individuals, Leaders, and Organisations" has been felt to be too long and complicated. This has been discussed both within the convener team for two years, and was raised in 2017 the issue was also discussed in the public meeting of the network in Copenhagen (see Network Meeting 2017, Copenhagen).
