Preparing the collection and review of Good Practice examples
We want to engage all our members as well as future members and externals to provide us with good practice examples in the domain of our annual topic. ELINET currently represents members from 15 countries, thus our ambition is to collect, review and – if approved – publish examples from many countries on our website. The subject of this third session will be to prepare this process: Defining the areas and criteria of good practice and discussing the tools and procedures how to collect and review good practice examples. As for the tools, we will build on the Good Practice Tools which the ELINET project developed in 2014-2016 which however need to be modified.
Moderation: Renate Valtin, Tiziana Mascia, Eufimia Tafa
