Second Issue of 2014 published


Dear EARLI members and readers,

I am pleased to present to you the new issue of  Frontline Learning Research (FLR), our open-access journal that publishes articles on recent issues and trends in research on learning and educational sciences.

This second issue is a Special Issue, on the topic ‘Learning through Networks’, which examines the role of networks in professionals’ learning. The special issue is based on a symposium ‘Learning through Networks’ held at the 2013 Conference of the European Association for Research in Learning and Instruction (EARLI) in Munich, Germany.

We encourage our readers to comment on each other’s articles and are happy to provide a platform for such discussions and commentaries.

We hope you will enjoy this Special Issue of FLR!
