Looking back – planning ahead

Trondheim, Norway, 13–15 June 2022

The Norwegian National Research School in Teacher Education (NAFOL) completes nearly 12 years of supporting emerging researchers working in schools and teacher education. In this final NAFOL event, we are interested in creating an overall program which presents what has been learned – by looking at the past, and what and how all of us can contribute to planning ahead, planning for a better education in an unknown future. We are pleased to invite you to our final event.
