Changing the trajectory – Quality for Opening up Education

This year’s EFQUEL innovation forum will take place in Crete – exact venue to be announced by end of the week. 

It will address one of the greatest challenges in today’s quality development for education and training: How to achieve quality for opening up education. The EFQUEL Innovation Forum is unique in its interactive design and brings together leading experts from all fields of European and global education and training to take stock of current and future challenges in quality development and innovation in e-learning. We are happy to announce that our 2014 edition will take place in conjunction with the LINQ 2014 Conference to shape the 2014 Mega Event for Quality and Innovation in education and learning.
