Registration open for researcher education and careers meeting

Registration is open for a European Association for Research on Learning and Instruction meeting looking at researcher education and careers.

Unpacking and exploring researcher communication: implications for inquiry into ECR experience will take place on 30 September – 2 October 2018 at the University of Copenhagen in Denmark. The meeting is aimed at researchers with an interest in early-career researcher experience.

The meeting will begin with an optional writing retreat followed by workshops on the following topics:

  • Research funding proposal: Why is it that the text is key but not sufficient for success?
  • Textbook: Research? Pedagogy? Neither or both?
  • Monograph thesis: What makes it a one-time endeavour? Why isn’t it a book?
  • Peer review: How do we learn to deal with reviews and to act as reviewers? Why is it an occluded genre?
  • Journal articles: Why is it so difficult to write papers? What implies co-authorship? How to combine author’s voice and disciplinary conventions?
  • Professional writing: What is the range? What are the challenges?

The deadline for registration is 1 June 2018.
