Every year in September an ENIRDELM international conference is organised in a European country by the Chairperson of ENIRDELM. Themes are chosen by the ENIRDELM Board after consultation with the members and related key-note speakers, paper presentations, workshops, symposia and project reports are arranged. This web-site gives access to a rich resource of power-point presentation from past conferences stored on the ‘Conference Presentations’ tab and its ‘Archive’ sub-tab. Over the last 23 years, much networking between participants at the conferences and beyond has resulted in the creation of many activities and projects. The venues of the conferences are listed on the tab ‘Previous Conferences’ and a fuller account, including themes and organisers, can be found under the ‘History’ section of this website with photographs of many or the organisers and events. In addition, the ‘Photo Archive’ tab provides more photographic records of several of the conferences. Under the ‘Publications’ tab an impressive list of ENIRDELM conference proceedings and related publications is available.
Our network prefers to remain small in order to retain its friendly culture and many participants return to the conference each year, though new friends are very welcome. Normally approaching 100 participants attend each conference from upwards of 20 countries to enjoy the professional and social experiences and exchanges that naturally arise from our self-funding ‘organic’ network. By organising conferences in 14 countries spread between Iceland and Turkey, our voluntary network has built bridges across and beyond the continent of Europe since it was founded in 1991. By bringing together educational leaders, practitioners, researchers and developers we strive to improve and share R & D and practice in educational leadership and in managing the important task of educating the next generation.
