The 10th International Conference: "Innovation for Development in Learning and Sustainability"
The Learning Teacher Network’s 10th International Conference was held at the five star Sheraton Zagreb Hotel in Zagreb, Croatia on April 16-18, 2015. The title of the conference was 'Innovation for Development in Learning and Sustainability'.
Welcome Letter to Conference Participants
In order to meet the challenges for the future, education and training need to address the areas of innovation, learning and sustainability. The conference will contribute to the exploration of these perspectives.
Innovative approaches in teaching and learning aim to inspire, challenge and engage all young people in rich and rewarding learning experiences that will equip them with the essential skills and attitudes for life, learning and work in the 21st Century. Education for sustainable development (ESD) is not a particular programme or project, but promotes efforts to rethink educational programmes and systems (both methods and contents) that currently support unsustainable societies.
The conference topic will be introduced by internationally recognized experts in this focal area of the conference, followed by parallel sessions of lectures and workshops led by practitioners and researchers. With deep appreciation of the many colleagues who will present and share their knowledge and experience, we are delighted to announce a conference programme that includes quality sessions given by more than 40 presenters and speakers from 16 countries in Europe and beyond.
Alike the previous conferences, we look forward to welcoming colleagues from all levels of education and training in Europe and beyond to a golden opportunity for gaining new knowledge and sharing experience in a good and friendly atmosphere in an international setting.
We wish you warmly welcome to the 10th International Conference and to Zagreb in April!
