University College Dublin (UCD), one of Europe’s leading research-intensive universities, was founded 160 years ago. Originally known as the Catholic University of Ireland and subsequently as the Royal University, the university became UCD in 1908 and a constituent college of the National University of Ireland (NUI). In 1997, UCD became an autonomous university within the loose federal structure of the NUI and UCD students are awarded degrees of the National University of Ireland.
From August 22 to 26, 2016, UCD hosted an international conference ECER 2016 "Leading Education: The Distinct Contributions of Educational Research and Researchers". ECER is the leading annual conference in educational research taking place in Europe. Each year it is attended by more than 2 000 participants. This year 2 595 participants registered for the conference.
The work of the ECER conference is organised in central events (plenary sessions, panel discussions, central workshops, etc.) and in 32 different scientific networks dealing with topical issues in education.
Prof. Ineta Luka attended the conference and presented the project in Network 11 „Educational Improvement and Quality Assurance”. The report is available on: http://www.eera-ecer.de/ecer-programmes/print/conference/21/contribution/36994/
The participants highly evaluated the project outputs and the European added value the project has created.
