Our Autumn NEARIMeet was hosted in the Education Building in Maynooth University. We were delighted to meet our lovely group of attendees. We also welcomed participants who attended online in our third experiment with a hybrid event.
We were delighted to express our gratitude to the Educational Studies Association of Ireland and their Special Interest Group (SIG) programme for supporting NEARI.
The meeting began with the sharing of the NEARI Code of Ethics by Bernie Sullivan:
We were then delighted to invite our guest speaker, Prof. David Coghlan to share his ideas with us. His presentation sparked much interest and much discussion:
