EARLI SIG17 CONFERENCE - Save the Date & Call for Proposals

Mibgħuta minn EPALE Österreich 3 ġimgħat 5 ilu

It-Tlieta 8 Settembru 2020 to Il-Ġimgħa 11 Settembru 2020

THEME: Tidying the toolbox: trials, blunders, and challenges overcome in research on learning and education

Published papers often seem to have research designs and methods that are ideally suited to their studies. Yet, research rarely happens with perfectly executed methods or starts out with optimal designs. Instead, it is littered with dashed hopes, rusty tools, and challenges that are met. The EARLI SIG17 2020 conference seeks to enable open discussions about what happens when the best-laid plans of researchers in learning and education meet reality. The aim will be to open up the research process: which methods worked out, which ones proved wanting, and what did we learn when we used them? Which designs did we attempt, and how could we improve them for future studies? What advice would we give to the junior or senior colleagues who might want to use similar methods or designs in future?

The conference aims to inspire submissions from the full range of methodological approaches. It will include mentoring opportunities for JURE members, as well as plenary sessions where senior colleagues discuss how they go about the ‘craft’ of research.

CALL FOR PROPOSALS is open until February 16, 2020. 

We seek abstract proposals that adopt a conceptual, methodological, or empirical lens on research methods, and that relate to the theme above. They can be about any research design or method used in research on learning and education, whether qualitative, quantitative, of mixed. We warmly welcome submissions from JURE members, who will benefit from in-depth discussions on the challenges involved in different research approaches, and equally invite members of other EARLI SIGs to join the debate. Potential presenters can submit abstract proposals for symposium, individual paper, poster, research ‘fail’, and workshop sessions. 

For specific formal requirements, please go to this page. All proposals are to be submitted via this form
