Annual Report 2015, Budapest
From the perspective of the Curriculum Network, ECER2015 has been quite successful. Paper sessions as well as symposia were well-organized and attended. Symposia were organized around themes such as national curriculum debates, teacher agency and successful curriculum implementation strategies. Also some joint sessions were held on the themes of Bildung and civics education. New was the preparation of a flyer which points those interested in the issues discussed in this network to other network events during the ECER.
ECER was aslo succesful from a network point of view. Participants get to feel 'at home' in the network and keep coming back. This is great from a social point of view as well as from an academic point of view. Discussions tend to become more substantial and to the point.
Also for the future, symposia will be very much welcomed . These symposia have proven to be an effective manner to create high quality sessions and assist in community building. Moreover, EERA is stimulating the creation of joint sessions with other networks to increase coherence. Network 3 will work on that and when relevant will continue to stimulate it.
