Proceedings of EAPRIL Conference 2014
EAPRIL is a non-profit organisation that bridges practice and research with the aim to cross the boundaries between education and working life. The association promotes practice-based research on learning issues in the context of initial, formal, lifelong and organisational learning with the aim to enhance practice. EAPRIL encompasses different contexts (such as schools of various educational levels as well as organisations and corporations across fields, such as engineering, medicine, nursing, business, and teacher education), at different levels (individuals, teams, organisations and networks), and in different stages of life (from kindergarten over students in higher education to workers at the workplace) Moreover, EAPRIL aims to enhance and empower practice by narrowing down the gap between researchers doing research on education and learning and practitioners in the educational field. It also bridges education, community and working life. At the annual EAPRIL conference and during the year, the association promotes exchange, of practice-based research on educational, learning and developmental issues sharing, construction and co-creation of insights, knowledge and improved practice of different educational themes and within various fields. Both research and practice are represent in this profound dialogue and exchange of information. Via these Conference Proceedings EAPRIL wants to encourage further connections between research and practice. This issue is the result of four days of interactive sessions from November 24-26, 2014.
