Annual conferences

forging and strengthening ties

reflecting on the ongoing research

improving the quality of research and teaching

The conferences add to the teaching and research components of the project, nurturing the synergies that lay within both.

They provide all VISTA network members an opportunity to share initial research findings, discuss teaching experiences, and address common challenges.
