Another productive meeting with our VEO Europa partners. The UK partners had coffee for their ‘breakfast’ meeting, but it was almost lunch time in Ankara!

Partnership Meetings via Skype
Our bi-monthly partnership meetings are conducted via Skype. We factor in the time differences and are able to meet while the UK has breakfast and our EEST partners are heading towards lunch! Today’s meeting (29 September 2016) focused on the partners’ preparation for data gathering in each country.
Face-to-Face Meeting in Ankara
The second face-to-face meeting took place at Hacettepe University in Ankara from 13-15th July 2016. Discussions about where we are and what activities we will do in the near future took place. Very productive was the different experiences working with VEO in the different countries and educational settings. Many thanks to our colleagues Olcay Sert and Merve Bozbiyik for organizing such a great session!
VEO Europa Kick-off Meeting in Newcastle

During this 3-day workshop, the partners from the UK, Germany, Finland, Turkey and Bulgaria discussed the project’s objectives, implementation and research. They shared their own experiences in teacher development and technology as well as their expectations and views of the project.
