SCoTENS Doctoral Workshop 2024

Doctoral Students with Committee Members, SCoTENS Conference 2023 at Lough Erne Resort, Co Fermanagh


The Standing Conference on Teacher Education North and South (SCoTENS) invites proposals for participation and working papers at the 6th 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 17 and Friday 18 October 2024 in the Slieve Russell Hotel, Ballyconnell, Co Cavan.  The conference theme this year is Innovative Pedagogies for Inclusive Education: Implications for Policy and Practice.  The Roundtable will take place on 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. Participants are invited to share insights from their research, pose questions and challenges they face, engage in critique and deliberations in a supportive context with their peers and experts in the field of education.   

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 new 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 23 August 2024 at 4.00pm.
