“Save As” Pedagogy Conference



29th February, 1st of March
Apáczai Csere János Theoretical High School, Cluj-Napoca


The strategy of the 3rd “Save As” Pedagogy Conference, as in previous years, is based on the fact that pedagogy, being inter- and multidisciplinary requires an education system connected to all institutions of society. The aim of the conference is to involve professionals and students working together with public schools, as well as individuals and institutions part of the academic and civil sectors. As a platform for professionals, the conference provides an opportunity to discuss issues that are often overlooked in the public education system, in teacher training, and during policy-making. Bringing marginal issues into mainstream discussions, and building collaborations is another goal of the organizers that can bring about change at a local level and serve as inspiration for others.

The conference will take place at the Apáczai Csere János Theoretical High School, Cluj-Napoca, between the 29th of February and the 1st of March. The organizers are looking forward to hosting 200 participants. The program includes 8 lectures and 14 workshops/seminars.
