WHO IS IT FOR:
This is an event for Education undergraduate, postgraduate and doctoral students
AIMS OF THE CONFERENCE:
The Honours element of most taught programmes requires students to demonstrate an ability to plan and conduct research and to analyse data. Most students following undergraduate and postgraduate education enjoy the research element of their degree, which can provide exciting opportunities for integrating the key theoretical components of taught programmes with the practical ones. For those students at doctoral level the challenge is more complex but equally rewarding.
This conference will consider the value and purpose of small-scale personal research in education for both individuals and groups. We are delighted that Professor James C Conroy has agreed to deliver the key-note talk: Negotiating tricky corners: becoming a researcher in Education. Professor Conroy is Dean in the Faculty of Education at University of Glasgow, and his professional interests include ethics, philosophy and theology in education, and education leadership. Delegates will also have the opportunity to hear students and tutors, including ESCalate student grant holders, discussing their different approaches to working alongside each other to deliver original and relevant results.
Consider applying to present a poster in our student-only poster session. Guidelines and a submission proposal form are available under "Downloads".
There will also be an opportunity for everyone to engage in an Open Space discussion. You will be able to take away fresh ideas and approaches to effective research.
