ACADEMIC NETWORK OF GLOBAL EDUCATION AND LEARNING (ANGEL) 2020 CONFERENCE, 11-12 JUNE IN OULU
The ANGEL 2020 Early
Career Researchers Conference was hosted by the University of Oulu. The conference focused on research on global
education and learning. The
purpose this year was to discuss and discover the conceptualisations that
frame our understanding of this field. Bringing the conference entirely online enabled wider participation from
a greater number of countries (40) than previously. The 216 registered participants included over 100 early career researchers and an estimated 75% were first -time attendees.
