In general, the quality of the sessions in ECER 2019 was increased in terms of reflection, innovative research and number of participants compared to other ECER conferences.
This year, NW20 had a special session zero in which our co-convenor Raimonda Bruneviciute explained the history of the NW20 and together we discussed the mission and future of the network.
Regarding sessions, NW20 had a special call together with NW31.Language and education with the title “Reflections on cultural and linguistic diversity in educational research”. The special call was a fantastic way of encountering researchers from two networks with the idea of learning together.
NW20 collaborated in a Joint Session titled “Education research at risk in Europe: What are the scientific, ethical, political and practical implicacions? coordinated by NW4, and including other three more networks: NW7, NW8, NW30.
Plans for ECER 19 were related to the idea of including more researchers in our network and design a project that could contribute to the development of N20.
