As over 300 delegates from around the world attended this week’s Life-long Learning Summit in Lillehammer, Norway, the team at Dublin City University (DCU) has been busy with preparations for the ICDE World Conference on Online Learning later in the year.

Earlier today, for example, they hosted the first of several webinars planned to assist authors and presenters in preparing conference submissions that address the conference themes. The webinar also provided an opportunity for prospective delegates to ask more general questions about the conference. If you missed today’s webinar a link to the recording will be available via Twitter (@WCOL2019) and on the conference website. Also you can still participate in the next webinar scheduled for later in the month. See details below:

Date: Wednesday 27th February (9.30 to 10.30am GMT)
