of the EOCCS Learning Community Symposium which facilitates the interaction between peers and online learning experts. You may take a look at the 2018 symposium here.
This September we will focus on new pedagogical trends which result in innovative teaching methods and study the understanding of changes by teachers in online learning space. The EOCCS Symposium will represent one-and-a-half-day event delivered via Zoom conferencing and other software tools.
