SIRD 2024 International conference

SIRD 2024 international conference

Educational research and teacher training.
Models, approaches and methodologies

Salerno, 26, 27 and 28 June 2024

The conference will address the current issues of educational research linked to the initial and in-service training of teachers from a systemic perspective and with the aim of initiating a reflection and discussion on the open questions and the consequent scientific and political strategies to be identified and pursued.

Universities have the delicate and essential role of promoting in teachers the development of knowledge, attitudes, teaching and evaluation approaches that are effective and usable for the continuous improvement of the quality of teaching and evaluation processes. The works, therefore, will be aimed at illustrating the current and potential relationship between educational research and its impact on the various areas of intervention, highlighting its strengths and weaknesses through study and research contributions.

The conference is aimed primarily at researchers in the pedagogical area and is open to the participation of teachers, educators and their associations.

It is planned to be divided into working groups in which studies and research relating to the following thematic sections will be presented and discussed:

  • Educational research and impact on learning
  • Teacher training and professional development
  • Inclusive evaluation processes, technologies and practices.

On the first day (from 3.00 pm), scholars of clear national and international fame will be invited to present a report on the themes of the event. The second day, organized in parallel sessions, will be dedicated to the presentation of studies and research contributions in the form of communications on the three thematic areas. On the third day, summaries of the reports presented will be proposed and a discussion will be launched to identify the main open questions and the strategic actions to be undertaken “to create an open school, capable of orienting, enhancing and developing the potential of the young generations”.

Only in-person participation is expected.
