Researching for Social Justice and Educational Improvement
Aimed at researchers, doctoral students, teacher educators and school teachers, this conference seeks to provide a showcase for relevant research in the region – especially that of teachers in local schools.
Call for papers
We are interested in all aspects of educational research that address the broad theme of social justice and educational improvement. As the conference is partly hosted by the English Education SIG in association with NATE then any aspect of work in English is welcome including, for example, related areas such as Applied Linguistics, TEFL and English Literature. Papers that address issues in teacher education and interdisciplinary aspects of research are also welcome. We are especially interested to offer opportunities to teacher researchers, Masters and PhD students. Papers will be grouped into sessions with three or four papers that have some common theme or topic.
Each proposals should provide:
- title, up to 25 words
- 250 word abstract [excluding references]
- 5 key words.
Deadline for proposals is: Wednesday 30 May 2018
Decisions confirmed: Wednesday 6 June 2018
For informal discussion about proposals and advice please email Andy Goodwyn.
