The BADGE annual meeting will take place online Thursday June 25 and Friday June 26, 2020.

The meeting will be an opportunity for IO groups to present their goals and results so far and get audience feedback concerning future work on the IO.

We are also going to have a keynote speaker who will talk about some aspects of language and communication in engineering education.

Stay tuned for the meeting final programme and schedule!
