British Postgraduate Philosophy Association Conference

The BPPA Annual Conference is an annual philosophy conference run by and for postgraduate students in the UK, as well as the occasional keen traveller from foreign parts.

Spread over a weekend, it aims at philosophical rigour but seeks also to leaven the deep-furrowed ponderings with social frolicking and gambolling. Typically, the BPPA Conference has 12-16 postgraduate speakers, plus a big-name keynote speaker from the host university. The atmosphere is always very friendly and helpful, and the conference is a lot of fun.

EARLI – European Association for Research on Learning and Instruction

Marrying rigour and relevance: towards effective education for all

The relationship between research and practice has long been a key concern in education and the social sciences more generally. For the field of educational effectiveness, this issue is at the forefront even more, given that the very intention of EER has from its origins been not just to identify the characteristics of effective education, but to influence policy and practice for greater effectiveness. At the same time, the field has always striven to put our knowledge of educational processes onto a sound scientific footing by employing rigorous research designs and analytical methods, which have increased in sophistication over the years.

In contrast to the views of some critics of the field, we feel that this methodological rigour is essential to provide practitioners and policymakers with information that is sufficiently robust to be used as a basis for decision making, and the theme of this conference reflects this belief.

It is therefore the aim of this conference to explore ways in which we can continue to produce research that is both rigorous and relevant, and also look at ways in which complex methods, designs and findings can be communicated and co-constructed with practitioners and policymakers. As such we aim to build on traditional strengths of our field, while being aware of the challenges we face.

The second part of the conference title likewise reflects both longstanding concerns in the field and recent developments. The principle of equity and positive educational outcomes for all students, whatever their background, has always motivated researchers in our field, but has if anything become even more central as many societies are confronted with growing inequality and complexity, and we hope to stimulate discussion on ways we can contribute to improving quality education for all students.

The conference should therefore be relevant to researchers, practitioners and students with an interest in educational effectiveness.

We look forward to welcoming you at Southampton!
