Uitnodiging Symposium "Het tienerbrein in de praktijk"

posted 6 Jun 2018, 07:12 by ICO Education   [ updated 6 Jun 2018, 07:12 ]

VU Amsterdam - 15 juni 2018 - 
Het Centrum Brein & Leren nodigt u uit voor het landelijke symposium
‘Het tienerbrein in de praktijk. Over leren, brein en ontplooiing’ 

Voor wie
Het symposium richt zich op meerdere doelgroepen. Het biedt kennis en inzichten aan wetenschappers en beleidspersonen die werken in onderwijsvernieuwing en/of met het zich ontwikkelende kind of adolescent. Het is tevens interessant voor professionals in onderwijs en opvoeding, en voor coaches. Wat hen bindt is de interesse in ontplooiing van kinderen en jeugdigen en een multidisciplinaire aanpak van onderwijsvernieuwing.

Brug van wetenschap naar onderwijs- en opvoedingpraktijk
De focus van het symposium ligt op pre-adolescenten (vanaf circa 8 jaar oud) tot en met bijna-volwassenen van ruim 20 jaar oud. Aan de orde komen thema’s zoals leren, denken en redeneren, nieuwsgierigheid, bewegen, aandacht en sociale cognities. En de belangrijke vaardigheden binnen het domein van de executieve functies, zoals zelfinzicht, zelfregulatie, planning en empathie. Daarnaast worden aandachtsstoornissen en veel voorkomende functiestoornissen besproken. Het symposium beoogt een brug te slaan tussen wetenschappelijk inzicht en de praktijk van onderwijs en opvoeding.

Sprekers
De sprekers op 15 juni zijn gepromoveerd neuropsycholoog of onderwijswetenschapper met veel ervaring in de samenwerking met het toegepaste praktijkveld. Wat hen mede bindt is een grote interesse in multidimensionele samenwerking met andere wetenschappelijke- en praktijkprofessionals.

Het gaat om: dr. Sanne Dekker, prof. dr. Renate de Groot, dr. Jos Hendriksen, dr. Petra Hurks, prof. dr. Jelle Jolles, prof. dr. Lydia Krabbendam, dr. Helen Reed en dr.Marleen van Tetering.

How to use an eye tracker to improve learning and instruction?


The symposium “EYE LEARN” (9 July 2018) will present state-of-the-art research on the use of eye-tracking methodology to study and improve performance and learning. International and national experts will contribute to this symposium, which focuses on how to use and implement visualizations of eye movements in educational settings or (e-)learning environments to support and improve student learning.

Participation in this symposium is open for all interested researchers. Participation (including coffee, lunch and drinks) is free.
Participants are also invited to present related research during the posters & drinks session. Posters should be no larger than A0 format (portrait). Please provide a (preliminary) title in your subscription.

Workshop Design research: Methodology and theoretical background

posted 28 May 2018, 00:43 by ICO Education   [ updated 29 May 2018, 05:00 ]

Pre-conference workshop EARLI SIG 17&18, Cambridge - August 26th, 11:00-17:00

Arthur Bakker (Utrecht University) and Rich Lehrer (Vanderbilt University) offer a one-day workshop on design research prior to EARLI SIG 17&25 in Cambridge, August 26, 11:00-17:00:

http://theoryandmethods.com/program/preconference-schedule/

Topic and rationale: To overcome the gap between educational research and practice, new kinds of educational research have been developed and are still in progress. An interesting genre of practice-oriented approaches aiming for improvement and sustainable change is educational design research (Van den Akker et al., 2006), also called design experiments (Cobb et al., 2003; Collins, 1990). Where most educational research is about how education was or is, design research is about how education could be. One of its key criteria is ecological validity (Brown, 1992) and another is a focus on “humble” theory development—working toward theories of learning and change grounded in the particulars of design.

Objectives and planned activities: The objectives are to give participants insight into the rationale behind design research and to provide opportunities to discuss challenges and possible solutions. This five-hour workshop entails round tables and personal consultation to ensure ample live interaction with participants and the workshop leaders. Furthermore, there will be discussion of successful as well as unsuccessful cases and brief lectures on the following topics (Bakker, 2018):
  1. What is design research (design experiments, design-based research, formative experiments, design studies) in comparison to action research, other intervention studies, and formative interventions?
  2. How to conduct design research? Possible research questions, delineation in studies, use of design principles, conjecture maps, and hypothetical learning trajectories.
  3. What are common challenges and ways to handle these? Think of co-design with teachers, lack of control but an emphasis on comparison, and reporting results.

Target audience (between 8 and 25 participants): The target audience is early career researchers who consider doing design research, or already use it. However, we also welcome educational researchers who want to know more about it, for example because they supervise students or teachers who want to combine design and research. We ask all participants to read a few core texts and send us a document with their research proposal or plan with a wish list of what they like to be discussed during either round tables or personal consultation, depending on the participant’s preference. If overbooked, early career researchers will be given priority.

Expected outcomes: Better understanding of the theory and practice of design research; increased enthusiasm to tackle perceived hurdles; ideas about how to partition the study of a learning ecology (tasks, tools, forms of argument, forms of interaction).
