The 27th JURE 2023 Pre-Conference invites Junior Researchers from around the world to engage in compelling discussions on educational research. JURE 2023 offers early career researchers a first academic conference experience and the opportunity to meet colleagues from across the globe.
The 20th Biennial EARLI Conference is hosted by the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and the University of Macedonia, Greece. Participants are encouraged to present results and ideas on state-of-the-art research in learning and instruction, specifically around the topic "Education as a Hope in Uncertain Times".
We are living in times when seemingly apparent certainties appear to be challenged by phenomena such as technological advancements, rapid transformations of the labor market, ‘redefinition’ of human communication, migration and population mobility, socioeconomic downturns, political instability, and democratic values under dispute. Education per se is constantly changing, modifying or redefining learning and teaching environments from very early age through the life span.
Education was highly disrupted and the learning process massively changed from face-to-face to online. Students, teachers, and parents face several challenges, in coping with these changes and in adapting to these new societal, economic, and educational settings.
Thessaloniki is the largest academic hub and research center in Greece. Its 150K strong academic community comprises of 3 major public universities, including the largest in SE Europe, 9 international private colleges, 9 world respected science centers, 4 major incubators, the biggest ones in Greece, and a vibrant startup community.
Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (AUTh) is the largest university in Greece and SE Europe founded in 1925 (about 80,000 undergraduate and postgraduate students currently study in AUTh). AUTh is widely recognized as a vibrant center of learning and research which draws its inspiration from a long tradition of academic achievement. It is a comprehensive institution with 41 Faculties and Schools covering all scientific fields, ranging from natural and technological to social and health sciences, arts, and humanities. AUTh has a strong international profile being actively involved in European and international networks.
University of Macedonia (UoM) comprises 8 Departments (with about 10.000 students) specializing in economic and social sciences. Now in its 7th decade of operation, UoM is developing into an extroverted, innovative, and bold academic institution whose priority is to deliver efficient teaching and research on clear and transparent quality -criteria. It is a well-organized institution, functional and environmentally-friendly, committed to the welfare of its -students, acknowledged by the local and the international community.
Thessaloniki, Greece’s second tier city and capital of the region of Central Macedonia is located on the Thermaic Gulf at the northwestern corner of the Aegean Sea. It is a lively and generous urban center that is both historic and avant-garde.
Named after the sister of Alexander the Great, daughter of Phillip II, back at the beginning of the Hellenistic times, Thessaloniki has always been the epicenter of great development and events, being a principal gateway from the Mediterranean to the Balkans and Central Europe. Throughout its history Thessaloniki has been a melting pot of diverse cultures, religions and traditions and the city’s multi-cultural heritage and profile were shaped by the work and deeds of emperors, saints, apostles, philosophers and thinkers, but also by its local residents, its refugees and immigrants.
Thessaloniki, sometimes covered by the thick mist, sometimes stormed by the heady wind “Vardaris”, yet always defined by its flairs and flavors, is now adays an economic, educational, and cultural center, a focal point for the Balkans and a geographic landmark between the eastern & western civilization, bridging North and South, East and West. Suffused with stories of joy and sorrow of the past, today the city enjoys a vibrant urban life, stimulated by the largest student community in Greece, the offerings of numerous museums and other cultural organisations, and enhanced by the exquisite physical location that through time has enabled openness and inspiration.
EARLI 2023 has two main local host organisations. The Aristotle University of Thessaloniki is the largest university in Greece (over 80.000 students) and is internationally recognized as a dynamic center of learning and research. The University has hosted a great number of international conferences and scientific meetings in all thematic areas very successfully. The University of Macedonia is the second university in the city of Thessaloniki specialized in economic and social sciences (over 12.000 students) and organizes various academic initiatives and events throughout the year. Both Universities have contributed Thessaloniki to become a significant academic hub in Southeast Europe, Eastern Mediterranean, and Black Sea countries.
Thessaloniki’s history, academic status and contemporary identity form the context for a hospitable and exciting EARLI 2023 destination: city-centered conference venues, a walk on the waterfront, the city’s atmosphere and famous gastronomy, and many more...
