We are very proud to announce the following keynote speakers: 
Dr. Leonidas Kyriakides (Associate Professor of Educational Research and Evaluation, Department of Education, University of Cyprus, Cyprus) 
"Improving teaching quality: an evidence-based and theory-driven approach to teacher professional development" 

Dr. Kristiina Kumpulainen (Professor of Education Department of Teacher Education University of Helsinki, Finland)
"Researching engagement, learning and agency in educational interactions" 

Dr. David Whitebread (Senior Lecturer in Psychology & Education Faculty of Education, University of Cambridge, United Kingdom)
"The early emergence of metacognition and self-regulation in young children" 

Dr. Aleksander Baucal (Associate Professor Department of Psychology Faculty of Philosophy, University of Belgrade, Serbia).
“On necessity of integration of quantitative and qualitative approaches for making relevant knowledge in education sciences” 

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. 

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.

In light of our conference theme – Learning and Instruction Inside Out – Contributions of Junior Researchers - we would like to extend an invitation to the JURE SIG coordinators to submit an invited symposium at our upcoming conference. We feel that this is an excellent opportunity not only to present research on one specific topic but also and more importantly to improve the linkage between the Special Interest Groups (SIGs) and the JURE community. 

We will contact the JURE SIG coordinators shortly to shed more light on this exciting new format. More information will be published on our conference website as well.

The submission system is now open and will be until 19th December 2013. Notification of decision will be given by 31st January 2014. After having selected the appropriate proposal type, you can submit using this link. 

Registration for the conference will be possible from 31st January 2014. Fees for early-bird registration JURE-members are €150 and for non-JURE-members €175. More information is available on the conference website. Please note that EARLI JURE members are entitled to a reduced conference fee. More information on becoming a JURE member is available on the JURE 2014 website. 


We look forward to seeing you in Nicosia!
