Best Papers by Country Sessions

Best Papers by Country Sessions

“Meet Austria, Finland, Germany, Ireland & The Netherlands!”


Featured every conference day will be a ‘Best Papers by Country’ session in which countries present their best national work in the field of Learning and Technology.

These daily ‘Best Papers by Country’ sessions give all conference participants an opportunity to connect with a variety of countries and organizations in the field. To make that possible, EdMedia + Innovate Learning is partnering with research and practitioner organizations on a national level worldwide. These organizations review the papers in their home countries and select the only the best three papers to be represented at EdMedia + Innovate Learning.

Selected paper authors and their organizations are highlighted in the program and receive a special recognition award.
