EARLI 2021 - ONLINE
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.
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 ".
The EARLI Executive Committee has decided, after careful consideration, that the EARLI 2021 Conference in Gothenburg will move fully online. The continuing uncertainty about what the pandemic situation will be next summer is making it impossible to plan. The University of Gothenburg has highlighted the challenges should the conference need to be socially-distanced. The buildings and the rooms that are available cannot cope with such arrangements.
Depending on the technological possibilities, the submission flow and the different timezones, the EARLI 2021 Organising Committee is currently discussing the exact structure of the conference and the dates. However, these will remain around the initially announced conference dates (August 24-28). We will let you know the exact dates and structure as soon as possible.
We feel that making this decision now allows us to plan creatively for a vibrant, intellectually rich conference. The conference theme – Education and Citizenship: learning and Instruction and the Shaping of Futures – has a new resonance in the light of COVID-19. We are now turning our attention to the online conference and to ensuring that the format allows for maximum interaction, lively conversation and the renewing of acquaintances. The past months have taught us much about the opportunities and possibilities that technology can offer us when meeting face to face is not possible. We are looking forward to seeing you all and sharing our research in new ways. Make sure to submit your work for the online conference before January 12th, as the peer-review process will proceed as normal. Watch this space!
The joy and excitement of learning and of knowledge sharing and creation, represent significant components of learning, and they should be considered as important outcomes of learning along with our traditional competence measures. In this respect, they need far more attention from researchers. The pandemic spreading during 2020 reminded us of the fact that the future is increasingly difficult to predict but it seems safe to say that learning and re-learning will continue a top prioirity regardless of the future. The EARLI community accepts the responsibility to show how learning and instruction are consequential for the intellectual, social and cultural fabric of societies striving to shape their future on the road to sustainability.

In light of the online conference, we anticipate the standard formats mentioned below will remain (though they may be tweaked to ensure wide participant interaction) but also that the affordances of technology will permit some entirely new formats. Keep an eye on this page for further information.
A paper session consists of four papers and is scheduled for 90 minutes.
Poster sessions are scheduled for 90 minutes, following the format above. Materials for fixing posters on the walls or poster boards will be provided.
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. In case the symposium only contains 3 papers, the additional time should be used for interaction.
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 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.
Workshops 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.
Workshops are scheduled individually for 90 minutes.
Collaborative workspaces allow the discussion of ongoing or future research projects with the goal of establishing or strengthening research collaborations. This may include collaborations about the constructs that researchers use, but also about methodologies or a specific content area. The submission for a collaborative space should include the main content area for which collaboration shall be established or deepened.
Collaborative workspaces are scheduled individually for 90 minutes.
