For this year's conference in Cádiz, Network 3 was able to put an interesting programme together, including six symposia, 40 paper presentations and one poster session. The sessions were very well-attended. Major themes were:
- Tension between local and global curriculum making
- Systemic Forces in curriculum processes
- Teacher enquiry and curriculum innovation
- Partnerships between schools and universities in curriculum innovation.
For the future, symposia will be welcomed, because of the possibility to discuss themes from different perspectives and have a discourse based (at least partly) on the additional issues raised by a discussant.
In order to give more attention to poster sessions, for the second time a poster prize was organized. Each network was invited to nominate one poster. The winner of the prize is presented on the ECER website. Next year, the poster prize will be organized, again. Moreover, interactive poster sessions with 'a guided tour' will be scheduled with an open discussion at the end of the session.
