The Beyond Distance Research Alliance team had a significant presence at the recent EDEN Conference in Gdansk, Poland. And what a trip it was.
I have reported elsewhere on one of the interesting workshops I attanded – in this case on OERs, which is very relevant to our OTTER project. But we also had a great ‘team time’ at, in and around the conference, as well as in the streets of Gdansk, a fascinating city. In addition to the usual benefits of an international conference in terms of networking and exposure to high-quality scholarly work, we were fortunate to have a few away days during which we not only worked together, but learned much more about each other.
A lesson learned – never underestimate the value of events like this beyond the obvious. The EDEN conference this year became an invaluable team-building opportunity for us, and we all maximised its benefit.
Dziękuję, Gdańsk, and Dziękuję, colleagues, for this.
