UCD School of Education Hosts European Congress for Educational Reasearch August 22nd - August 26th

From August 22nd to 26th, UCD School of Education was proud to play host to this year's annual European Congress for Educational Research (ECER 2016),  the annual conference of the European Educational Research Association (EERA), an umbrella organisation for a multiplicity of national educational research associations throughout Europe. There were over 2,500 delegates from more than 70 countries who presented in excess of 2,000 papers during the conference. The week began with a pre-conference where 380 PhD students from 50 European countries presented their work in progress, while mentoring was provided by academic staff in the school of education, UCD. This was the largest conference hosted in Belfield to date. Feedback from EERA indicates that it was ‘one of the best conferences ever’ in its more than 20-year history on almost as many university campuses across Europe.
