A crucial part of IPA's mission is to inform member associations and the wider global publishing community about breaking developments which will impact publishers. We do this through a number of channels. the IPA website, our monthly e-newsletter, press releases and the IPA's dedicated social media feeds.

The International Publishers Association, in association with the Publishers Association UK and the London Book Fair, presented the third annual IPA Education Conference on 16 April, at Olympia Conference Centre, West London.

Like its predecessors, 'What Works?’ 2015 was a great success. The day-long program featured 22 speakers from Australia, Brazil, China, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Mexico, Netherlands, Singapore, UK and USA, making presentations, taking part in panels and discussing what it takes to create successful polices and resources and how to deliver them via appropriate technologies in the educational sphere.

For the programme of events, please go here.

Over 140 attendees and speakers from more than 30 countries heard representatives from the World Bank, and the UK Interactive Entertainment Association,  as well as publishers, policy makers, and cutting-edge researchers from around the world looking at how best to deliver different kinds of information in a classroom for maximum effect, and what resources are most needed.

Due to the success of the first three ‘What Works?’ conferences, we will put on another one next year. ‘What Works?’ #4 will again take place in London on 11 April, 2016, the day after the IPA Congress and the day before the beginning of the London Book Fair. Save that date!

2015 Speakers’ Presentations: Andrew Fong, Marshall Cavendish (Singapore) Luis Benveniste, World Bank (USA) Lis Tribe, Hodder Education (UK) Werner Wiater, Augsburg University (Germany) Gino Roncaglia, Tuscia University (Italy) Lucia Santaella, São Paulo Catholic University (Brazil) Debborah Smith, Bond University (Australia) Wouter Oosterheert, Stichting leerKracht (Netherlands) Sarah Maughan, AlphaPlus Consultancy (UK) Wouter van Tol, Samsung (UK)
