2020 SCoTENS Doctoral Roundtable to take place Online – Application Date Extended

The Standing Conference on Teacher Education North and South (SCoTENS) invites proposals for participation and working papers at the 5th SCoTENS Doctoral Studies Roundtable (Virtual).  The Virtual Roundtable will provide a mix of short presentations by participants on their work in progress and will also feature participation by SCoTENS colleagues who are leaders in the field of Teacher Education and related research in Ireland and beyond.

The 2020 SCoTENS Doctoral Roundtable will take place online on Wednesday 21st October from 7pm to 9.30pm.

This roundtable will bring together doctoral researchers working on topics relating to teachers, teaching, and teacher education in its broadest readings on the island of Ireland. We will explore the changing landscape of teacher formation, the emergence of new voices and perspectives, and the evolving debates around teacher professionalism as a primary concern, both as a focus for our community and a methodology for constructing knowledge. The SCoTENS committee invites doctoral students from affiliated institutions, who are interested in these and related issues to apply for a place at the roundtable to discuss their work with like-minded peers and SCoTENS network colleagues. 

The roundtable will provide a space for doctoral researchers who are university-based and/or from the wider professional arena to meet and discuss their interests and to showcase their work.

Applications are now being accepted. Please complete and return the application form electronically to tricia.kelly@qub.ac.uk by 4.00pm Friday 9 October2020. Invitations to participate will be sent out by mid October along with joining instructions and details pertaining to the format of the roundtable.
