Validity and Value of Teacher Education Research
22 – 24 October 2018
The NAFOL conference is a meeting forum for NAFOL doctoral students and their supervisors.
We are proud to invite you to the 5th NAFOL conference which takes place in Hamar, Norway, 22-24 October 2018.
The theme of the conference is Validity and Value in Teacher Education Research which was the AERA conference theme in 2002. We believe that the theme is just as relevant today as it was back in 2002, especially for the target audience of the conference, emerging researchers. For teacher education research to inform and improve education, researchers cannot compromise on the quality of their research which has to be valid research-wise as well as of value to all stakeholders of education.
Emerging researchers are invited to participate in the conference, to present their projects/papers and engage in discussions with peers and international experts. The keynote speakers are Professor Gert Biesta from Brunel University, Professor Jorunn Møller from University of Oslo, and Professor Mien Segers from Maastricht University. The NAFOL conference provides a unique opportunity for emerging researchers to meet with international renowned researchers.
We welcome you to the 5th NAFOL conference.
