4th VoiceS-Conference: European Teachers Network - Conference IMPACT

Saxion University, from 03 November 2016 to 05 November 2016. 

Saxion University of Applied Sciences is one of the largest institutions of higher education in the Netherlands, with over 24,000 students and 2,200 staff members is honoured that they may host the Conference IMPACT of the European Teachers Network in November 2016.
Saxion consists of three campuses in the Eastern part of the Netherlands - one campus in each of the three Dutch cities of Deventer, Enschede and Apeldoorn. Thanks to the important contribution of agriculture to the local economy, this region is renowned for its countryside and fairly relaxed pace of life. However, all four Saxion locations have good public transport facilities, meaning that the cities of Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Utrecht and The Hague are no more than 1½ hours away. Saxion has built a strong position in Dutch higher education and has come to be recognized as an important centre of expertise at regional, national and international level. The University offers a broad range of courses at various levels, including many international educational programmes. The international student population tops 2,500 students with a total of 55 different nationalities. Many of Saxion's full-time educational courses are already conducted in English, with more being added each year. Saxion is divided into thirteen individual schools each with its own discipline, although not all schools offer international programmes. Until 2020 Saxion’s key area of focus is Living Technology. Research projects are also connected to this field of development. Saxion has six Research Centres each centre with its own area of expertise. Research results and new insights are not only beneficial to cooperating businesses and organisations but also in the educational programmes. Being in such close contact with the market ensures that the content of the programmes is always aligned with the latest developments within the professional sector concerned. 
In 2015 the school of Teacher Education, located in Hengelo, moved to the city campus of Saxion in Enschede in a new modern building with the name Edith Stein. The Edith Stein building will be the central building for the Conference IMPACT.
All delegates and guest will be required to register for the Conference IMPACT by 01 October 2016. Following this, we will have a clearer picture of our arrangements and activities.
However, the provisional plan is that the conference will begin with a meeting of the steering group of VoiceS at 14.00 hours at Thursday 3 November 2016. The delegates can register at the Edith Stein building at 16.30 – 18.00 hours. This is a short walk from the chosen hotel Intercity or Hotel Rodenbach. A opening and welcome event is planned for the evening.
Friday and Saturday will be working days with key-note speakers, workshops, poster presentations, parallel sessions and cultural activities in the city of Enschede.
We hope that the conference will have IMPACT for everyone, for students, primary teachers, student teachers and all others that are involved in education.
