School of Education Doctoral Conference 2021
Online conference including synchronous, asynchronous, online and offline spaces and events.
The Doctoral Conference Committee (Bristol and Hong Kong) are delighted to announce the School of Education Doctoral Conference to be held 21–25 June 2021. The conference will offer a week of synchronous, asynchronous, online and offline spaces and events that explore and celebrate educational research and teaching practice.
The annual doctoral conference is a student-led effort to bring together research students, doctoral researchers and academics to explore, contribute and reflect on key issues in educational research, policy, theory and practice from a broad range of research areas. We welcome participation from all research students at any stage of their academic journey, from MRes students to those who have concluded their doctoral degrees recently.
The event will include:
- Keynote speakers — announcements coming soon.
- 15-minute presentations from students + Q&A — these will be held at different times during the week to allow participation from different time zones. On submission of abstracts we will create a timetable for the presentations and confirm exact details with presenters.
- Conference gallery – a shared online space for posters, podcasts, videos or prerecorded presentations accessible throughout the conference week.
- Walk and talk – exploring practice while exploring your local area, more details to follow.
…. and there will be prizes!!!
The impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on everyday life has been significant and the themes of the conference consider being an educator, becoming a researcher, and teaching and research practice within these extraordinary times. The theme of ‘Reflection’ invites you to think back on the challenges and the opportunities that arose in classroom practice and educational research as our everyday lives moved online. 'Representation’ asks you to consider both who is now included as well as who is becoming excluded. Finally, ‘Reshaping’ considers what challenges are posed by a post pandemic era and to imagine educational research and classroom practice futures.
Call for abstracts and gallery submissions now open!
We invite research students, doctoral researchers and academics to explore, share and reflect on key issues in educational research, policy, theory and practice from a broad range of research areas.
