ESERA 2017, 21-25 August, co-hosted by CASTeL in DCU and Epi-STEM in UL
August 21, 2017 - August 25, 2017
The 12th conference of the European Science Education Research Association, ESERA 2017, will be co-hosted by Dublin City University (DCU) and University of Limerick (UL) from August 21st to 25th. The organization of the ESERA 2017 conference is led by STEM Education Professors Eilish McLoughlin, Odilla Finlayson, Sibel Erduran and Peter Childs from the Irish STEM education research centers CASTeL and Epi-Stem. The theme of the ESERA 2017 conference, Research, Practice and Collaboration in Science Education underlines aspects of great relevance in contemporary STEM education research: the need to reflect on different approaches to enhancing our knowledge of learning processes and the role of context, designed or circumstantial, formal or in-formal, in STEM teaching and learning. International interest and registrations for the ESERA 2017 conference have far exceeded all prior records with over 1600 proposals submitted for conference presentations and nearly 1500 STEM education researchers and teachers from across 75 countries already registered to attend.
