The WERA 2020 Focal Meeting will be held in Santiago de Compostela, Spain, from 1st to 3rd July 2020. The main theme of the meeting will be Networking Education: Diverse Realities, Common Horizons. The Meeting is an integral part of the 17th Spanish & 9th Ibero-American Education Conference, organized by the Spanish Pedagogical Society (SEP) and the University of Santiago de Compostela. As one of the founding members of WERA, the Spanish Pedagogical Society is pleased to host this event.
The WERA Focal Meeting seeks to feature research that includes more than one country or is comparative, cross-cultural, international, or transnational in conceptualization, scope, or design.
