26-28 June - Transversal competences in education and training: from discourses to practices

Call for papers

The community of researchers, trainers, teachers, and all the practitioners in pedagogy as well as students are invited to submit contributions dedicated to the topic of transversal competencies in education and training.
The SSRE 2024 Congress aims to provide a privileged opportunity to discuss the topic in depth and critically, to understand the concrete role that transversal skills play in the world of education and training, thematizing good practices and ways of development, and identifying the benefits they could bring in education and training.
Contributions may be presented in one of the following formats: single contributions, research posters, symposia, collective sessions. A research-based or practice-based orientation can be chosen for each of the formats. For more details we refer to the call for papers document.
The call for papers is now open. Submissions can be sent until November 15, 2023 January 7, 2024, via the dedicated link.

Each single contribution, poster or symposium proposal will be evaluated by two members of the extended scientific committee (double-blind peer review), while collective session proposals will be evaluated by members of the congress organizing committee.

Orientation of contribution

It will be possible to submit contributions based on research or practice. Please indicate your intended choice:

Research-oriented contribution
Research-oriented contributions illustrate completed or ongoing research projects with a focus on theory and literature review or analysis of empirical data. Practical activities for research-oriented articles may include a demonstration of a data collection tool, or collaborative analysis of a reduced set of data, etc.

Practice-oriented contribution
Practice-oriented contributions report on formal or informal teaching and/or learning experiences carried out on the ground, with a focus on their implementation and impact. While focused on practice, they should include an appropriate theoretical framework and some empirical evidence to support the claims and insights Practical activities for practice-oriented contributions may include a demonstration of a learning tool, or a rehearsal of a short classroom activity, etc.

Presentation formats

Single contribution
The single contribution, for which one or more authors may be responsible, consists of a 15-minute presentation followed by 5 minutes for questions and discussion. It may be research- or practice-oriented, and the presentation may include a practical activity. As much as possible, individual contributions will be grouped into sessions of 3 or 4 papers on similar topics. The contribution should be submitted in an anonymous format: authors should not mention their name and affiliation organization.
Research posters
The research poster can be designed by one or more authors and present a completed or ongoing research project. Posters are particularly suitable for presenting early or intermediate results and can be research or practice oriented. Authors are responsible for printing the poster in A0 vertical format. Posters will be presented during a dedicated collective session.
The symposium brings together scholars from at least two separate institutions on a clearly identifiable common topic, coordinated by one (or more) lead proponent. The symposium lasts 90 minutes and usually includes three presentations (in exceptional cases four), followed by a discussion. Each presentation lasts 15 minutes and covers a different but complementary project or topic within the common topic. Multilingual symposia are possible and welcome. A person designated by the symposium proponent(s), other than the authors, assumes the role of discussant and initiates the discussion with a critical contribution and moderates the ensuing discussion. At least 45 minutes should be allocated for the discussion. Papers submitted as part of the symposia will also be evaluated individually and may be research or practice oriented. The contribution should be submitted in an anonymous format: authors should not mention their name and affiliation organization.
Collective session
The collective session provides an open space for discussion and sharing of ideas in a less formal but structured setting. Authors prepare a brief stimulus for interaction and/or invite one or more speakers and personally take on the moderation of the session. The collective session lasts 90 minutes and can take the form of a panel discussion, workshop, pro and con debate, etc. At least 45 minutes should be provided for discussion or interaction. Collective sessions can be research or practice oriented.
