EERA, the Johannes Kepler University of Linz and the Federal Institute for Educational Research, Innovation & Development of the Austrian School System (BIFIE) are pleased to announce the 2017 EERA Summer School which will take place from 10 - 14 July 2017. We invite 70 European doctoral research students to a five-day Summer School focusing on the role of "Methods and Methodology in Educational Research". The Summer School will be held at the Department of Education and Psychology of Johannes Kepler University of Linz and at the Federal Institute for Educational Research, Innovation & Development of the Austrian School System (BIFIE) located in Salzburg, Austria.
The Summer School aims to:
- open and promote a European research space for collaboration and networking between early career educational researchers
- explore the opportunities and challenges available through different analysis approaches in educational research projects
- provide insights into contemporary research topics, research questions and research methods.
The Summer School will offer:
Morning sessions with stimulating lectures on various educational research topics with experienced professors as well as opportunities to discuss and develop your own research project in collaboration with other research students and experienced tutors, a varied and engaging social programme and a visit to BIFIE (Federal Institute for Educational Research, Innovation & Development of the Austrian School System) and the city of Salzburg.
The five day course will be a mixture of lectures, workshops and peer group discussions. Students will be advised and supervised by experienced researchers. ECT credits (3.0 with paper/1.5 without paper) can be awarded to interested students. For the 3.0 ECT credits, students are required write a paper (further information will be provided). Students applying for ECT credits will pay a fee of ca. 20,00 € to JKU.
