The Art of Networking

Networking is a key competence of practitioners in education, and networks are considered to have high potential for solving structural problems. The Art of Networking deals with planning and implementing a particular type of educational network: European networks in the framework of the EU funding programmes for lifelong learning.
The publication addresses professionals in education - teachers, trainers, programme developers, managers, researchers and evaluators - who are already involved in networks or may wish to be so in the future.
Topics addressed in The Art of Networking include:
Network theory. The perspective of social network analysis

  • The mission of European networks in the EU funding programmes in education
  • Planning and establishment of a European network
  • Network management and implementation
  • Evaluation of a European network
  • Networks promotion, dissemination and sustainability
