The JURE 2021 Pre-Conference invites Junior Researchers from around the world to engage in compelling discussions on "Citizenship and Education". JURE 2021 offers early career researchers a first academic conference experience, and the opportunity to meet colleagues from across the globe.

EARLI 2021


24 - 28 AUGUST 2021

The 19th Biennial EARLI Conference will be hosted by the University of Gothenburg, Sweden.  We encourage participants to present results and ideas on state-of-the-art research in learning and instruction, specifically around the topic "Education and Citizenship: Learning and Instruction and the Shaping of Futures ".

THEME


"Education and Citizenship: Learning and Instruction and the Shaping of Futures "

Venue


The 19th Biennial EARLI Conference will be hosted by the University of Gothenburg, Sweden.

The University of Gothenburg meets societal challenges with diverse knowledge. 47 500 students and 6 000 employees make the University a large and inspiring place to work and study, with a continuous flow of new knowledge and ideas. Strong research and attractive study programmes attract scientists and students from all around the world. The University of Gothenburg is environmentally certified and works actively for sustainable development. With new knowledge and new perspectives, the University of Gothenburg contributes to a better future.

The Faculty of Education is directed at several areas within education, for example learning and teaching among children, adolescents and adults, leadership and pedagogy. The Faculty provides education directed at teacher training as well as for qualified teachers. Among our students there are also future food economists, sports coaches, educational leaders and health promotion workers.

Research at the Faculty addresses many critical issues within pressing societal areas. Such areas are for example the content of teaching and learning in schools, the implications of digital technology for learning processes, and the predictability of future academic success from assessment and grading. Our researchers also target specific issues within sustainable development, health, the organisation of schools and educational planning.

SUBMISSION TYPES


The following submission types are welcomed:

Paper

PAPER

Paper sessions consist of four paper presentations, followed by a discussion with the audience. Each presenter will be given 15 minutes presentation time, followed by five minutes for questions. At the end of all presentations, there is a ten-minute open discussion. Empirical papers should indicate clear data and results, or they will not be accepted. Research that is at an earlier stage is very suitable for roundtable or poster sessions. Theoretical papers, of course, are also welcomed.

A paper session consists of four papers and is scheduled for 90 minutes.

Poster

POSTER

Interactive poster sessions involve five or six posters, visually presenting research studies. This format is perfect for developing research and/or preliminary results. 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 presenters the opportunity for interaction and discussion with the audience.
Poster sessions are scheduled for 90 minutes, following the format above. Materials for fixing posters on the walls or poster boards will be provided.

Symposium

SYMPOSIUM

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 2019.

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.

Round Table

ROUNDTABLE

Roundtable 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. Roundtable sessions will take place in seminar rooms with a board-room style table.


Three to five roundtable sessions are clustered together per session, and are scheduled for 90 minutes.

ICT

ICT DEMONSTRATION

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 individually, for 90 minutes.
