Working Meeting 1. Three-minute research work presentation

Elke Struyf, University of Antwerp (Belgium) & Eleftherios Soleas, Queen’s University (Canada).

Often students and particularly PhD students are navigating immense workloads, with a single vision focus on their research topic area.  They often do not realize the opportunities that are offered by attending, contributing or even sourcing the expertise of committees and an international network, such as ISATT.

Therefore, the ISATT Graduate Student Committee has taken the initiative to organize a special program for graduate students, where they can present their work in a safe environment and receive feedback on their research activities from peers and more experienced scholars.

Graduate students can actively participate in this workshop and present their work as a ‘three-minute presentation’ or can attend this workshop as a ‘listening participant’ only.

It is necessary to subscribe for this workshop in advance. We encourage participants to give a short presentation, about their research (goal, methodology and if available results) or their research ideas. Please also mention a specific topic or question you want to address in the workshop or want feedback on. Please sent your abstract with topic or question to Esta dirección de correo electrónico está siendo protegida contra los robots de spam. Necesita tener JavaScript habilitado para poder verlo. and Esta dirección de correo electrónico está siendo protegida contra los robots de spam.

Of course, graduate students can also present their work in a paper, poster or round table format at the ISATT conference.


Working Meeting 2. Writing for publication.

Professor Amanda (Mandi) Berry recently joined RMIT (Australia) from Leiden University, in The Netherlands.

Her research focuses on science teacher education, and teacher educators' knowledge of practice. She is Editor in Chief with Tom Russell of the international journal Studying Teacher Education (STE).

Susan Elliott-Johns is an Associate Professor, Nipissing University (Canada).

Her research focuses on literacy teacher education, teachers and teaching, and professional learning for teacher educators. She is a member of the International Advisory Board for STE, and an Associate Editor for Teachers and Teaching: Theory and Practice (the journal of ISATT).

In this Workshop, Mandi and Susan will share an overview of the topic, 'Writing for Publication', for graduate students and early career scholars, and present an analogy of writing for publication with Olympic competition! Conversations around participants' own olympic efforts as 'works in process' will also be facilitated, as time allows.
