Each eamba Exchange meeting is a structured dialogue focusing on a theme that is relevant for the teachers’ community.
The Exchange service team  – main organizer of the meetings  – chairs the sessions, whenever possible together with a guest-host from a local member association.
Whenever all participants agree, the exchange will be recorded and the audio version made available on the eamba Exchange YouTube channel. All who registered for the meeting receive the link to the audio within 48 hours.

In general, the dialogues are conducted in a charming concert of voices colouring the English language with local styles and accents. We are attentive to wishes for translation. We are exploring ways for more languages and translation, your suggestions are welcome. We already use the functionality to offer subtitling in English to facilitate understanding.

As of 2022 – in principal – one monthly eamba Exchange will be dedicated to Peer Reflection / Intervision:
a free exchange on an issue that emerges from (a) participant(s) during the live meeting.
You are invited to offer a topic that concerns you for peer reflection.

The second monthly meeting is co-created with an invited guest, an expert on the specific topic who generously shares knowledge and insights to support the continuous learning of the eamba Community.

Feel welcome to contact the eamba Exchange service team at exchange@eamba.net
