The theme of the JURE 2017 pre-conference is

Education in the light of multiple perspectives: Towards intertwining personalised and collaborative learning

We would like to invite junior researchers around the world to join the conference and engage in compelling and important discussions about learning and instruction research. JURE 2017 offers you an opportunity to share your work, receive and provide constructive feedback, attend various workshops related to methodologies, career development and academic writing, become involved in conference sessions as a discussant and/or chair, and to network in a scientific community.

The theme of the JURE 2017 pre-conference is: “Education in the light of multiple perspectives: Towards intertwining personalised and collaborative learning”. Over the past years and more recently, the field of Research on Learning and Instruction, has seen tremendous shifts in the delivery of learning and instruction, its goals, and its understanding as a discipline. The aim of the conference is to learn, introduce, and discuss new insights and challenges posed by ongoing changes within the educational field. Moreover, the conference aims to stimulate new and exciting ideas and approaches for addressing the ongoing development.

Challenges often originate from new ways of looking at the organisation and delivery of education. To be able to address challenges and identify opportunities, JURE 2017 focuses on three general questions:

  • How do learners learn, and how can we support their learning in these ‘new’ environments? (e.g. self-regulation, instruction in online, blended and face-to-face learning environments, situated and collaborative learning environments)
  • How do we assure that we do not lose the rich social context of learning? (e.g. participation, collaboration, democratic values)
  • How do we make sure the curricula and institutions have a solid answer on these new evolutions in education? (e.g. curriculum design, evidence-based teaching, professional development)

We strongly encourage submissions about learning, instruction, and curricula or institutional development. We aim to provide participants a broad range of research topics, methodological approaches and outlooks on research on learning and instruction. Submissions may include papers on recently conducted or ongoing research during poster presentations or symposia, or presenting ideas on future research in round tables. Together, JURE 2017 represents research findings and perspectives on the topical questions of today and tomorrow in learning and instruction.

Call for submission is open untill 27 October 2016
