Opening Ceremony

EERA and the Local Organizers of ECER 2019 would like to formally open ECER 2019 Hamburg, 'Education in an Era of Risk – the Role of Educational Research for the Future'.

The ceremony will begin with words of welcome from the State Secretary at the Federal Ministry of Education and Research, Christian Luft, and the President of the Universität Hamburg, Dieter Lenzen.

This year's Opening Ceremony will also include music, the launch of the EERA book  "Doing Educational Research - Overcoming Challenges In Practice" published in partnership with SAGE publishing and the presentation of the ERC 2018 Best Paper Award to Sara Franch.

Book Launch: "Doing Educational Research - Overcoming Challenges In Practice"

EERA is proud to announce the publication of the book "Doing Educational Research - Overcoming Challenges In Practice" in partnership with SAGE publishing.

From the SAGE website:
"Every educational research project has challenges and obstacles that need to be managed and overcome. This book uses real case studies employing a wide range of research methodologies and drawn from educational contexts across Europe to explore these challenges offering flexible and universal guidance that you can apply to your own research.   

Published in partnership with EERA, this book is:

  • Realistic and informed: It explores a range of perspectives on educational research, from planning to data collection to international collaboration
  • Challenging: It integrates a holistic and critical view on the process of educational research
  • Culturally aware: It covers a variety of research projects from different countries and encourages you to challenge dominant perspectives in education

This is the first major English language textbook for postgraduate and postdoctoral education researchers that represents and explores the range of research traditions that exist throughout Europe and what they mean in practice."

EERA Going Green

As part of the commitment of EERA to ensuring that our annual European Conference on Educational Research (ECER) is as sustainable as possible, we were delighted to work with the local organisers of our Hamburg 2019 conference to develop our 'Green Agenda'.  Watch this videoto learn more!

To cover and document the conference from a student’s perspective, Josephine Hohberg, a masterstudent in Hamburg, will blog and report on her #ECER2019 experience.
