JURE 2014

posted 3 Oct 2013, 01:36 by ICO Education   [ updated 3 Oct 2013, 01:37 ]
Nicosia, Cyprus, from 30th June until 4th July 2014 -
The JURE 2014 conference seeks to enhance the field of Learning and Instruction by re-addressing some of the research questions which have already been raised, bringing about new methodologies and ideas in the process. Like sailors facing the unknown, young researchers are faced with a challenge to re-explore the field inside out and to overcome any difficulty in order to go beyond what is already known. The JURE conference brings together researchers working in various domains of Learning and Instruction. Different viewpoints and diverse methodological orientations allow them to 
contribute to the exploration of Learning and Instruction Inside Out. 

Devoting one’s self to research includes asking questions and discovering new paths while seeking for the answers. Yet, researchers today do not embark on such an endower alone; they share ideas and collaborate with others. The JURE 2014 conference in Nicosia is an excellent opportunity for such an exploration. The JURE 2014 organizing committee cordially invites you to participate in the exploration of “Learning and Instruction Inside Out” with world-renowned keynote speakers and expert-led workshops, paper presentations, and interactive poster and round table discussions. To deepen this joint journey, all participants of the 18th JURE Conference are expected to take part in the feedback procedure and to provide comments on one paper, poster, or round table hand-out of another conference participant. Additionally, on paper proposals they will receive feedback from an experienced senior researcher. All junior researchers (PhD and MA or MSc students, as well as graduates who have received their doctorate within the last two years) can apply to participate in the 18th JURE Conference. Thus, participants will have the opportunity to meet many talented young researchers, with whom they can explore “Learning and Instruction Inside Out”, either during formal presentations or in informal chats over coffee breaks, lunch hours, and social activities. 

Proposals should consist of an abstract (300 words at maximum) and an extended summary (1000 words at maximum, including references). Proposals for the following session formats should be submitted through the conference website: 
  • Paper presentation: A paper session consists of 2 or 3 conceptually linked papers. Each individually submitted presentation lasts 15 minutes and is followed by 10 minutes for questions and discussion. 
  • Poster presentation: Posters are grouped conceptually. Each poster is introduced with an oral presentation (max 3 min.) and allows the participants enough time to freely walk from poster to poster. 
  • Round table: A round table session consists of 2 or 3 conceptually linked projects. Each presenter has 5 minutes to introduce his/her project and raise one or two open questions, after which 25 minutes are intended for discussion. 
To make sure that you choose the most appropriate format for the current phase of your research, please see relevant information provided on our website.
