The Educational Research Institute, the Slovenian Educational Research Association (SLODRE) together with the Centre of the Republic of Slovenia for Mobility and European Educational and Training Programmes (CMEPIUS) organised the 4th annual scientific conference ‘Research in Education and Training: International Aspects of Education and Training’ again.
The main goal of the ‘Research in Education and Training’ annual scientific conference is the dissemination of research results and the exchange of experiences, identification of key issues, challenges and obstacles in education as well as the promotion and development of research in general. This year’s conference (with the subtitle ‘International Cooperation as Support to Education and Training’) also aims at highlighting the role and importance of international cooperation in supporting education and training. Nevertheless, the conference remains open to all other approaches, orientations and topics.
The conference took place on 18. and 19. September 2019, at the Research Centre of the Slovenian Academy of Sciences and Arts (Novi trg 2, Ljubljana).
For the first time, the conference takes place for two days. At the conference, 96 papers were presented, among which 60 were scientific papers and 37 professional. Moreover, this year, for the first time, we observed an increasing number of “foreign” participants, at 33 this shows a growing interest in the conference also abroad.
