SCoTENS Doctoral Workshop 2023

The Standing Conference on Teacher Education North and South (SCoTENS) invites proposals for participation and working papers at the 5th SCoTENS Doctoral Studies Roundtable.  The 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 Doctoral Studies Roundtable will be held in conjunction with the Annual SCoTENS Conference, which runs on Thursday 19 and Friday 20 October 2023 in the Lough Erne Resort in Fermanagh. The conference theme this year is Celebrating 20 years of SCoTENS: HOPES, DREAMS AND POSSIBILITIES FOR TEACHER EDUCATION. The Roundtable will take place on the Thursday morning at 11am.

This Roundtable will bring together doctoral researchers working on topics relating to education and educators in its broadest sense on this island.  In Ireland, north and south, diversity and inclusion remain significant challenges and the conference will explore the links between education, schooling and societal wellbeing and inclusion. It will debate the purposes of education and consider what pedagogies are needed to challenge oppression and marginalisation.

A limited number of accepted contributions will address issues in the general field of educators and education – ideally in light of the concerns of the conference theme as noted here. We, therefore, invite doctoral students interested in these and related issues to apply for a place at the Roundtable. The Roundtable will provide a space for doctoral researchers to meet and discuss their interests, to showcase their work, and to participate in the SCoTENS Conference more broadly.

Accommodation and meals will be provided, and participants will also have full access to the main conference.  Please submit your proposal on the attached form to before the deadline of Friday 15 September 2023 at 4pm.
