NW 04 Inclusive Education: Unlocking education: developing inclusive education in exclusionary times.

Unlocking education: developing inclusive education in exclusionary times

Exclusion is a constant companion to inclusion, both theoretically and in practice. The experience of exclusion, both within and beyond schools, is driven by issues of social justice, well-being and the construction of identities associated with disability, gender, sexuality, ethnicity, and socioeconomic status. Challenging and overcoming these experiences of exclusion needs to be a constant focus for inclusive education. This special call provides an provides an opportunity to foster study and debate concerning the role inclusive education can play in responding to and counteracting these exclusionary pressures as they are experienced within our schooling systems.

Open Science in Education

Open Science has become an umbrella term for several recent developments ranging from open access publications to open research data, open metrics, and open educational resources. Open Science calls for the transparency of science and its processes, for the accessibility of scientific outcomes and resources, and for the traceability of research and its production of findings. Following the last two organised EERA sessions of network 12 about Open Science, we aim for an adaption of and critical engagement with Open Science in Education.

NW 14 Communities, Families and Schooling in Educational Research: Reconciling school-community and formal education

Reconciling school-community and formal education

Respecting the conference theme, ’Education and Society: Expectations, Prescriptions, Reconciliations’, ECER/EERA Network 14 invites contributions raising the issue of tensions between the realities on school-community relationships in all locations, in particular those involving families and schools in the socio-educational development of the community and the stated aims of formal education. For example: what can be learned in/from these spaces to create a fairer and more inclusive nation? How does the curriculum contribute to reconcile community engagement and society’s ambition? How can families and schooling work together towards a reconciled society?

NW 17 Histories of Education: Understanding Different Stakeholders and Converging-Diverging Agendas in Education across Europe..

Understanding Different Stakeholders and Converging-Diverging Agendas in Education across Europe (and beyond) through History of Education Lenses

For centuries a variety of stakeholders have concerned themselves with education. Histories of education, then, help understand contestations and conflicts as well as compromises between stakeholders, approaches, and agendas. They thereby offer insights into the expectations, prescriptions and reconciliations regarding education and its developments. A key perspective is that of different communities or interest groups, their modi operandi, rivalries, and alliances.

Network 17 invites proposals for the European Conference on Educational Research in Geneva, Switzerland in the form of papers, panels, roundtables, workshops, and posters. NW17 is open to any contributions related to the overall conference theme.

NW 17 Histories of Education: Shifting Identities in Transnational Spaces. Migrants and Minorities narratives through time

Read more

Shifting Identities in Transnational Spaces. Migrants and Minorities narratives through time

This call aims to contextualize and historicize on narrative identities. Identities, understood as fragmented and de-centered, shift among other through transnational processes of migration. This call aims to trace these narratives in migrant- and minority communities and/or individual stories. Shared memories, the transfer of knowledge, a particular language, habits and social strategies overlap or distinguish communities and social groups. To assume a ‘homogeneity’ of experiences of refugees, migrants and/or minorities, which leads to a shared identity, to a common reaction towards the country of arrival or even to communal forms of resistance is deceptive. A differentiated view on these individual and situated stories helps us to deepen our understanding of responses, individual, collective and/or intergenerational, towards exclusion and racialized categorization, which is endemic to experiences in education and in educational systems today.

NW 22 Research in Higher Education: Pedagogical Practices in Higher Education in the aftermath of Bologna Process

Pedagogical Practices in Higher Education in the aftermath of Bologna Process

Pedagogical practices in higher education have been the object of significant attention across Europe in the last two decades, as significant changes in teaching and learning processes

have been encouraged in many countries by the Bologna Process. These changes have had a

considerable impact on teachers’ work, but this has not been extensively explored within the field of research into higher education. Being so, this special call focuses academic teaching work, envisaging to gather papers from various European regions in order to further understand curricular and pedagogical practices, as well as teachers’ processes of professional development.

NW 28 Sociologies of Education: Sociologies of Learning: Spaces, Knowledge, Technologies and Ontologies

Sociologies of Learning: Spaces, Knowledge, Technologies and Ontologies

Network 28 invites scholars to examine why and how has ’learning’ replaced more established practices and semantics in the European and OECD policy dicourse through a sociological lens. We invite submissions engaging with the ‘sociologies of learning’, mobilizing sociological theoretical and methodological resources to explore learning ‘as a phenomenon produced through the intra-action of a multiplicity of paths, networks and processes’ that shapes the future of education and poses challenge to the sociology of education itself. Questioning its contents, purposes, modalities, relationships and ontologies, contributions should aim to unbox ’learning’ as a sociological and political object.
