EARLI SIG 14: Bridging Professional Development Research

International Conference: 8th EARLI SIG 14 Learning and Professional Development, 24-26 August 2016Regensburg (Germany)
The theme of the 2016 conference is: “SIGnature: Bridging Professional Development Research”. The EARLI (European Association for Research in Learning and Instruction) SIG14 Learning and Professional Development focuses on professional and vocational education and training and has a particular set of interests associated with learning at and for work. The nature of the research conducted by SIG members is influenced by various scientific disciplines and paradigms. The conference will consider how this variety of approaches can be effectively combined, what has been done so far to bridge gaps, and what can be learned from these attempts? Out of these deliberations should arise what topics are important for future research on professional development. An exciting programme of activities is planned for Doctoral students, taking place prior to the main conference. We are delighted to confirm Professor Andrea Ellinger and Professor Rudolf Tippelt as conference keynote speakers. The deadline for the submission of proposals is January 15th, 2016. Further information can be found at www.ur.de/earlisig14. We look forward to welcoming you to Regensburg in August 2016!
