Pre-Conference Foundation Years Forum

ICSEI Pre-conference Welcome & Networking Session

The pre-conference is an event organized by the early career researcher & practitioner forum and the ICSEI networks.

Part 1 of the morning is targeted at the early career researchers (e.g., PhD students) and practitioners. For example, are you a PhD student in educational science? Are you interested in learning more about how your research can have an impact in schools and classrooms? Join this ICSEI pre-conference for a unique opportunity to discuss your research with leading scholars and peers, build networks and gain new knowledge. Educational research can provide important ways for teachers and leaders to improve in their own practice while having a strong impact on student learning.

Part 2 is targeted at people interested in the ICSEI networks. ICSEI consists of six networks: Early Childhood; Educational Leadership; Policy, Politics, and Practice (3 P); Methods of Researching Educational Effectiveness (MoRΣ); Professional Learning; and Data Use. At this welcome session, network coordinators will tell you about the overarching role of ICSEI networks, outline what each individual covers and the content each network has lined up for this year’s conference.
