Programme

Pre-Conference courses

We will be offering a number of pre-conference courses that will take place online around the time of the ICCH 2020 Part 2 Conference. Please keep an eye on the Courses page of the website to find out more. These will be advertised in January.

The EACH Pairing with Colleagues programme

The Pairing with Colleagues programme was initiated by tEACH, the Teaching Committee of EACH, in 2007. The purpose of the programme is to provide a formal way for junior colleagues to network with more experienced colleagues at a conference. The ‘Pairing with Colleagues’ session allows less experienced colleagues to have an opportunity for dedicated time to discuss their teaching and/or research issues with more experienced persons in the field.
