Webinar Series

All dates and speakers now confirmed for 2022/23 #ANGEL_WS Webinar Series.

To further the project aims of the Academic Network on Global Education & Learning - of building an international community of researchers and scholars in the field of GE, and responding to event feedback from members, we are happy to confirm the return of our regular series of shorter, research-focused events for the 2022/23 academic year. The ANGEL Webinar Series series, created with the needs of members in mind, but open to all, is aimed mainly at Global Education professionals, as well as anyone with an interest in research in the fields of Development Education, Global Citizenship Education, Human Rights Education, Education for Sustainable Development, Education for Peace, and Intercultural Education. This event, along with the other activities of the ANGEL network, are co-funded by the European Union.

Last year's series was a great success, with 6 varied events bringing together almost 900 representatives of the global education and learning community from almost 90 countries.

As last time around, all events are free and open to all, but please do register in advance. Some sessions may feature follow-on informal member-only sessions. 

Sessions will all be open for booking by mid-November. All times in London time.

The hashtag this year is #ANGEL_WS if you want to have any related conversations on Twitter.
