EDEN Digital Learning Europe is delighted to announce that the Annual Conference will be hosted by Tallinn University, Estonia, on 20-22 June 2022 in hybrid mode. We hope to see the majority of the participants face-to-face in Tallinn, but virtual participation will also be an option.

The digital ecosystem of education has experienced both challenges as well as innovation boosts within the last two years in Europe. This situation is a potential for EDEN as the hub of professionals dealing with digital transformation of educational organisations.

EDEN has a long history of supporting educators in online and distance education, providing a forum for discussion, learning, and refinement of best practices in this area. This pandemic has been no exception.

This yearʼs conference is intended as a continuation of the efforts of EDEN to support educators by providing a space to explore the issues and insights that have emerged during the COVID-19 pandemic.
