SIG20/26 conference 2018

Τhe Joint 2018 conference of the EARLI Special Interest Groups 20 (“Inquiry Learning") and 26 (“Argumentation, Dialogue and Reasoning”), took place successfully at Jerusalem, from October 9th to October 12th, and was hosted by the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. The conference was organized by the local organizing committee (Christa Asterhan, Baruch Schwarz, Edith Bouton, Yifat Kolikant, Efrat Firer) in collaboration with the international organizing committee (On behalf of SIG 26: Baruch Schwarz, Armin Weinberger, & Freydis Vogel / On behalf of SIG20: Bram De Wever, Ingo Kollar, & Yiannis Georgiou).

The theme of the conference was "Argumentation and Inquiry as Venues for Civic Education". In line with the theme, many contributions opened up current research perspectives on argumentation and inquiry and specifically looked at how both can contribute to societal change and debates. The conference was well attended and brought together more than 200 researchers from both SIG20 and SIG26!
