We are pleased to announce the 16th EATEL Summer School on Technology Enhanced Learning (JTELSS) that will take place in Sani, Halkidiki, Greece on May 21-28, 2022. The summer school is organised by the European Association of Technology Enhanced Learning – EATEL.
We are committed to organize the event in the face-to-face format, taking the necessary health and safety measures. However, we will have to cancel the event if the local authorities do not permit it. From the experience of the past summer, we are looking forward with careful optimism.
The measures we will apply include a requirement for all participants to be fully vaccinated against COVID19 (plus a booster if that is a norm by May 2022), a requirement for all participants to demonstrate a negative COVID19 test on the day of arrival, organizing excursions to remote nature areas, and equipping outside locations at the hotel to host workshop sessions.

Halkidiki is the region in the north of Greece, projected to the southwest in the Aegean Sea, and extended to three peninsulas: Cassandra, Sithonia, and Athos. Halkidiki is one of the most well-known summer destinations of Greece blending the Aegean turquoise beaches with the pine trees nearby the sea. The special beauty of the region resulted in the characteristic phrase “Like Halkidiki, nowhere!” when someone wants to describe Halkidiki.

The plenary sessions of the school will be hosted by the main conference hall of the hotel, a well-ventilated space with openable windows.
