This Presidency conference focuses on the adaptation of learning and teaching roles in response to the wide-ranging and increasingly rapid pace of change in Europe and the world at large.

The conference aims to shine a light on best practices and discuss how they can be applied more widely, and calls on European countries to devote greater, coordinated attention to the changing roles of teachers, schools and other educational institutions.

The conference also seeks to build a shared and coherent understanding of the most important educational research results and how these can support student learning and achievement. The challenge is to find evidence-based, effective and efficient ways of ensuring our education systems evolve in an optimal manner to address both long-standing and newly emerging needs. Participants are invited to contribute to the discussions about best practices and their widespread implementation organised around the following themes:

  • stakeholder engagement
  • educator and learner engagement and autonomy
  • the building of effective learning environments that address the needs of a world in flux
