‘Group Pedagogy & Collaboration with Schools’
27 – 28 October 2017, Reyjkavik, Iceland

Our members have expressed a great interest in a second edition of the seminar on this topic, as many of them were not able to attend the first edition held in Copenhagen in 2016. The EMU has therefore decided to repeat the seminar in Reykjavik with only minor changes to the programme.
