On 16 November the latest Newsletter was distributed to almost 300 colleagues and friends on the ENIRDELM mailing list and placed on this website. It is the last ENIRDELM Newsletter under the editorship of David Oldroyd who hands over his Voluntary Permanent Secretary and Editor role to Karol Sadleir after his 27 years of ENIRDELM activity. He is grateful to all the self-motivating ENIRDELMers from around the world who have contributed their time and warm friendships over these many years to the cause of improving educational leadership, research and development and building bridges across Europe. May the solidarity and success of the friendly professional network be long sustained!
The publication deadline for the November 2017 ENIRDELM newsletter is 15 November. This will be the final newsletter that I will be editing and I would appreciate contributions, not only those already promised, but from all who have items of interest to the almost 300 educators around Europe on our mailing list. Please check former newsletters on this website to see the type of contributions that we are seeking. Future newsletters will be edited by Karol Sadleir who succeeded me as Voluntary Permanent Secretary after the Krakow Conference in September.
It is with great sadness that we announce the death in September 2017 of the founder of ENIRDELM, Fons van Wieringen. While professor at the University of Amsterdam in 1991, Fons took the initiative at an ESHA educational congress in Utrecht, to form and lead the first ENIRDELM Board comprising Danuta Elsner (Poland), David Oldroyd (then UK), Christen Jordet (Norway) and Rosa Lafitte (Spain) with a view to establishing a network to bring together educational leadership professionals from across Europe. This was shortly after the fall of the Berlin Wall. It was Fons’ visonary way to build bridges between East and West Europe. An obituary will placed in the the forthcoming ENIRDELM newsletter to be published mid-November.

“Leading and Managing for Development”
Dear fellow ENIRDELMers,
We hope that you are all well and looking forward to a restful and relaxing Easter. We would like to draw your attention to our call for papers. As you all know our 26th Annual ENIRDELM conference will take place in Kraków, Poland on the 14th -16th of September, 2017. Our theme this year is ‘Leading and Managing for Development’. The conference will enable participants from all areas of education to meet and share their work in a supportive environment. We hope to showcase learning in the following sub-topics:
- Understanding educational development in your country, region or school.
- What the development set out to achieve?
- How the development played out at different levels (individual, group, organizational, social, global, etc.).
- Collaboration between different stakeholders to ensure development.
- Changing understanding of development in our different contexts.
- Development and its relation to teaching and learning.
- Factors contributing to development of students.
- Leading for development in its different dimensions.
We want to present the possibility for everyone to share their own learning in this area, therefore the sub-topics are indicative, not prescriptive. If you are interested, you can tailor your topic based on the conference theme. For some practical information on the different types of proposals click here
To make an online proposal:
1. Read the guidelines which should be used in preparing the papers.
2. Open the online form and submit details with your manuscript.
Our self-regulating voluntary self-funding network prides itself on making its procedures transparent and thus our Board minutes are published for all to see. The latest minutes of the meeting to plan the 2017 conference in Krakow are now available on this website.
The ENIRDELM Board is meeting in Krakow 3-4 February to see the venue and plan the detailed programme for the September 14-16 conference in the historic Polish former capital city. The Board will also monitor other networking and outreach activity based on a report from the Voluntary Permanent Secretary.
