The GDN 2020 Annual Meeting in Delhi, India was cancelled due to the impact of the worldwide COVID-19 issue. Country and institution-specific travel restrictions had already started to make travel for many of our registrants and some speakers impossible or inadvisable. The health and safety of our partners is our primary concern. Therefore, as a precaution, and in an effort to help safeguard the well being of all participating in the event, making this decision was unavoidable.   

To facilitate the sharing of ground-breaking ideas related to equitable, digital learner mobility and recognition, the GDN will bring the conference content to the World as online, interactive webinars. Please join us as we continue to innovate into the future!  Check back here for details about the series of upcoming interactive talks and panel discussions
