Attending a conference or joining a community of practice helps build connections within the education community, providing platforms for discussion of policies and practices in education around the world. They provide an excellent opportunity to share knowledge and experience, network with other professionals, collaborate on projects and learn new and innovative teaching techniques and ideas.
