The JURE (Junior Researchers of EARLI) pre-conference precedes the EARLI 2017 conference and will take place at the same venue.
We would like to encourage you to share your research with the JURE community to:
The JURE pre-conference also offers a wide range of interesting workshops lead by renown researchers on a variety of topics.
More information on the JURE 2017 pre-conference can be found here.
The 17th Biennial conference of the European Association for Research on Learning and Instruction (EARLI) is taking place in Tampere, Finland and will be hosted by the University of Tampere.
Education is struggling between the tensions and forces from economy, politics, media and scientific reaserch. Against the backdrop of the economic situation in Europe, public funding for education is decreasing in many countries. This creates a situation in which politicians tend to initiate programmes that attract media attention in order to guarantee the continuation of their political careers. The role of research in advancing education is being challenged as are the funding opportunities for educational and psychological research.
What is research about, how to combine theory and practice, and how to convince the general public and policy makers of the myriad strengths educational and psychological research have to offer to the advancement of well-being and public good?
We warmly encourage participants to present results and ideas to increase the impact of research in the political and societal decision-makers.
If you are interested in participating in and attending the conference, be sure to mark the following dates in your calendar:
Symposia provide an opportunity to present research on one topic, often from multiple perspectives, compiling a coherent set of papers for discussion. Symposia sessions are directed by a chair, involving four presenters and one discussant, from at least three different countries. We recommend that each individual submission is checked for its own quality and its relevance and coherence to the topic of the symposium prior to formal submission to EARLI 2017.
A symposium is scheduled for 90 minutes, allowing 15 minutes presentation time per speaker, ten minutes for the discussant, and 20 minutes for open discussion.
Paper sessions are oral presentations of four papers, followed by a discussion with the audience. It is important that empirical papers have data and results, or they will not be accepted. Research that is at an earlier stage is very suitable for Round Table or Poster sessions. Theoretical papers, of course, are welcome.
Paper sessions are scheduled for 90 minutes. Four presenters are given 15 minutes presentation time followed by five minutes for questions. At the end of all presentations there is a 10-minute open discussion.
Interactive poster sessions involve five or six posters, visually presenting research studies. A short oral presentation of about 5 minutes for each poster is given to an audience gathered as a group. After the authors’ brief presentation, an in-depth discussion between them and the audience follows. The poster sessions offer researchers the chance to present their work in a visual format and offer more opportunities for interaction and discussion.
Poster sessions are scheduled for 90 minutes, following the format above. Materials for fixing posters on the walls or poster boards will be provided.
Round table sessions offer opportunities for a more discursive exploration of research issues. This may well involve discussion of work in progress. The presenters explain their research and research issue, and invite the participants to help to discuss emerging data or to solve a research issue or problem. Round table sessions will take place in seminar rooms with a board-room style table. Five or six presenters will explain and discuss their research one after another.
Round table sessions are scheduled for 90 minutes.
ICT Demonstrations allow presenters to display, explain and familiarise users with a potentially useful teaching or research tool or method. The presentation may include references to completed research, but the point of the session is to demonstrate the tool, not present the research for criticism. The audience may offer their viewpoints and share their experiences with similar tools or different tools for the same purpose.
ICT Demonstrations are scheduled for 90 minutes.
Workshops provide an opportunity to familiarise participants with some aspect of research or teaching practice, so that questioning and discussion are suitably informed. Learning-by-doing occupies most of the session, and any presentations are brief. Providing adequate time for reflective discussion is important.
Workshops are scheduled for 90 minutes.
