Summer School Program

We are proud to continue the SIG 8’s tradition of organizing a summer school for promising young researchers prior to the conferences. In 2022, we are excited to invite young researchers from both SIGs!

The Joint Summer School of SIG 8 and SIG 16 will be held from August 21st to 23rd, 2022. 

The program of the summer school will offer participants the opportunity to present and discuss their projects in a collaborative atmosphere and with generous time. The focus will be on an exchange of ideas, getting to know each other, establishing and deepening collaborations, and further developing participants‘ research projects. There will be opportunities for input and workshops, social activities, and time for discussions and consultations with the summer school teachers.
Based on the topics and interests of the participants, three groups are formed, each with eight participants and two teachers. During the summer school, these groups will remain stable and each will work separately. There will be the opportunity for each participant to present and discuss their project in a 45 min focus session. For workshops, input and discussions we will all come together. On Monday afternoon and evening there will be the opportunity to explore the beautiful city center together.

Workshops and Input are in the planning. We are looking forward to sessions on methods (e.g., Research on technical enhanced self-regulated learning), analysis strategies (e.g., Markku Niemivirta: Modeling change over time), and career development (e.g., Sofia-Eleftheria Gonida & Ruth Butler: Should I choose a researcher’s career? Promises, Challenges, Difficulties).
