Learning Conferences are times of affirmation and celebration, as well as thoughtful and scholarly occasions. The Spetses conference will be no exception, with an arts program including a classical Greek drama. Optional pre- and post-conference tours will allow you to savour some of the wonders of classical and modern Greece (Olympia, Dephi, Corinth, Athens, Epidavros) as well as the extraordinary beauty and heritage of Spetses and nearby islands, including Hyrda and Aegina.

The 2001 Learning Conference will be a participants' conference, with everything from plenary presentations by world renowned educators, to research paper presentations and workshop descriptions of practice, to informal outdoor sessions with the keynote speakers.

* Virtual registration available for those who cannot attend in person: includes access to the online edition of the conference proceedings and provision to present virtual papers for publication in the online and print editions.
