The uLearn17 peer-reviewed Research and Inquiry Symposium (RIS) is an opportunity to engage with research and inquiry that relates directly to ‘on the ground’ teaching and learning. This is a unique chance for research and inquiries to be shared by teachers, leaders or researchers. The focus is to advance knowledge and practice in order to transform teaching and learning.
All presentations are peer-reviewed, meaning they have been scrutinised by education and research experts to ensure rigour and relevance.
The Research and Inquiry Symposium runs throughout uLearn17 and will include paper presentations (20 minutes per presentation) grouped under themes, and invited speaker panel discussions as part of the wider conference strand sofa sessions. All presentations are fully integrated into the conference programme and can be booked as part of delegates' personal breakout selection process.
Register for the full uLearn17 conference and attend as many of the Research and Inquiry Symposium sessions as you like.
