The SEAS project had its second concortium meeting in Tallinn in the beginning of December. Prior to the meeting, a range of documents had been prepared that all aimed to set the stage for the local open schooling networks preparing to embark on a sustainabililty challenge in their local communities. The meeting was structured as a series of workshops focusing on the key concepts in SEAS, tools, and methodology.

Diverse group of local networks

The SEAS-project aims to conduct empirical studies at student learning trajectory level, school level and network level by design-based study approaches, with a multitude of methods. The main ambition of the symposium meeting was to develop a shared understanding of key concepts and tools that allow for diversity, coherence and emergence, given the diverse group of local open schooling networks.
