Learning is an essential part of human life. But how can learning be supported and improved? How can we design learning opportunities for different learners in different contexts? And how can educational research contribute to better learning? In order to address such educational challenges, it is becoming increasingly important to upscale learning sciences research. This can be done by setting up partnerships and networks between (early career) researchers, so that knowledge, skills and experiences about learning can be shared and new directions and approaches for research can be determined. This is why PULSE-2021 is organized.
Hosted by the University of Twente and generously funded by the editors of the Journal of the Learning Sciences (2017-2020), PULSE-2021 will sponsor 25 highly motivated early career researchers to join PULSE (travel expenses not included).
The aim of PULSE-2021 is to bring together early career researchers who are excited about learning and who wish to understand how learning can be enabled, improved, and supported in different contexts using (technological) tools, social networks, and practices.
During PULSE early career researchers can:
- expand their network with peers and leading experts
- participate in interactive discussions about research, policy and practice
- join workshops to upskill themselves as learning scientists
PULSE-2021 will be held on 7-8 January 2021 in De Broeierd, Enschede, The Netherlands.
Are you a PhD-student or Postdoc working in the learning sciences? Then register before the 28th of August.
NOTE: Writing a motivation letter of max. 500 words is an obligatory part of the registration.
We are closely monitoring measures taken against the COVID-19 virus and its impact on the PULSE-2021 symposium. We will follow the rules and restrictions as communicated by the Dutch government.
The safety of our participants, speakers, and workshop organisers is our priority and we will do what we can to protect everyones health. If necessary other options for organising the conference will be explored.
Regular updates will be provided through this website.
