7th annual meeting
The Seventh Annual GDN Meeting in Paris was a major success and attracted new attendees, while it also welcomed back friends from previous gatherings. This reinforced the network’s relevance for the furtherance of global learners mobility today. Such success could not have been achieved without the overwhelming support from our charter entities, sponsors, supporters, participants, and signatories, with many of the aforementioned wearing several if not all of these hats.
This year’s theme was “The Age of Opportunity: Privacy, Trust, and Learner Mobility,” which was explored through presentations on an array of topics, from Digital Technologies in French Education, to the GDPR and Higher Education Privacy Standards. While significant challenges still exist related to learner mobility, they can be addressed through greater collaboration on a global scale. The 2018 Meeting Report highlighting the sessions, speakers, and takeaways is now Available in this After the Event issue.
We thank you for your continued support, and look forward to welcoming you all to the Universidad Popular Autónoma del Estado de Puebla- UPAEP in Puebla, Mexico at our 2019 Annual Meeting.
