ACRE 2020

CANCELLED: Education for human flourishing: Places and spaces for learning and teaching

It is with regret that the Faculty of Education at Edge Hill University has taken the decision to cancel this year’s Annual Conference for Research in Education (ACRE) in light of the current Covid-19 pandemic  This includes both the doctoral day school on Monday, 13 July 2020, and the main conference to be held on the 14th and 15th of July.

We will , however, look to hold the doctoral day school later in the year, and will announce details as soon as they are available.


Original call for info only:

12th Annual Conference on Research in Education (ACRE) will be held 13th-15th July, 2020.

The Faculty’s 12th Annual Conference on Education (ACRE) provides a dialogic and critical forum for exploring its principal theme of how learning and teaching supports human flourishing in different spaces and places. The conference is based around these ideas, and will therefore be relevant (but not limited) to those working in education – or whose work has import for education – and who are interested in how education for human flourishing might be facilitated by (or made more difficult by) different spaces and places for learning and teaching.

The conference is also interested in receiving proposals that relate to the conference sub-themes. Applicants are invited to select one or more to which their submission most closely aligns:

1. Digital spaces and places for learning;
2. Places and spaces for professional learning and change;
3. The environment and sustainable futures for education;
4. Learning in diverse community, social and informal spaces;
5. Change and development in Higher Education spaces and places;
6. Education settings as spaces and places for learning;
7. Socially just spaces and places for human flourishing.

The CfP is now available, with a range of options available for participation. You can download the call here (via eshare).

We look forward to welcoming you to our beautiful campus!
