Edited by Wim Kouwenhoven

VU University Amsterdam, Netherlands

From 3rd to 5th March 2008 the International Association of Technology, Education and Development organised its International Technology, Education and Development Conference in Valencia, Spain. Over a hundred papers were presented by participants from a great variety of countries. Summarising, this book provides a kaleidoscopic view of work that is done, all over the world in (higher) education, characterised by the key words ‘Education” and ‘Development’. I wish the reader an enlightening experience.
