Multi-paradigmatic Transformative Research in Education: Challenges and Opportunities

Multi-paradigmatic Transformative Research in Education: Challenges and Opportunities

ULEAD2013 Annual Congress:ICRE, Ürgüp/Nevşehir

May 31, 2013 – June 2, 2013

The ULEAD 2013 Annual Congress, at which some of the main challenges in the field of education will be addressed through high quality research studies, will represent an attempt to apply a variety of philosophical perspectives to Educational Research. The first of this international congress, which is to be held from 31 May – 2 June 2013 under the joint organisation of Nevşehir University Faculty of Education and the International Educational Researchers Association (ULEAD) in Ürgüp, home to one of the natural wonders of our country and, indeed, the world, will therefore be entitled ““Multi-paradigmatic Transformative Research in Education: Challenges and Opportunities”. Research conducted in the field of education should consist mainly of studies which simultaneously address both theoretical and practical concerns. There is thus a need to bridge the gap between theory and practice.

We are looking forward to receiving submissions featuring high-quality research related to the ULEAD 2013 Annual Congress theme of “Multi-paradigmatic Transformative Research in Education: Challenges and Opportunities”. The deadline for submissions is January 31, 2013. Paper and poster submissions from the education research community and related disciplines and fields are broadly encouraged. The ULEAD 2013 Annual Congress submission system will open on 25 November and will close on January 31.

Distinguished Educational Researchers

The ULEAD 2013 Annual Congress, at which some of the main challenges in the field of education will be addressed through high quality research studies, will represent an attempt to apply a variety of philosophical perspectives to Educational Research. The first of this international congress, which is to be held from 31 May – 2 June 2013 under the joint organisation of Nevşehir University Faculty of Education and the International Educational Researchers Association (ULEAD) in Ürgüp, home to one of the natural wonders of our country and, indeed, the world, will therefore be entitled ““Multi-paradigmatic Transformative Research in Education: Challenges and Opportunities”. Research conducted in the field of education should consist mainly of studies which simultaneously address both theoretical and practical concerns. There is thus a need to bridge the gap between theory and practice.

The purpose of research must be to seek solutions to the most urgent problems of the community, to develop innovations which will improve the current situation and finally to transform them into actions serving the public good. With this objective in mind, the Educational Research Directorate of the Department of Science and the Community, operating under the auspices of TÜBİTAK, the Turkish Science and Technology Research Council, conducts national and international educational research aiming to enable a culture

of science, technology and innovation to thrive and take deep root, and also to expand and disseminate high quality education and teaching throughout the community. In addition, NGOs -educational research associations- contributing to educational research also carry out important work with respect to these aims.

In conjunction with other stakeholders, we would like to invite you to address all dimensions of current pressing issues, such as the pros and cons of the 4+4+4 education models introduced in Turkey this year; the hotly debated question of teacher training strategies, a topic which the Ministry of National Education has for the past year been working on in order to develop a new strategy; educational research aimed at the prevention of violence towards women and children, so prevalent both in our own society and in many other places throughout the world; peace, love and democracy education, sorely needed in this world which seems to have turned into a ball of fire; values education, intended both to recover lost values and to protect those values which still exist; early childhood education; the reflection of rapid technological development in education; our foreign language education programmes for which no philosophical objectives have been developed and which thus resemble a jigsaw puzzle, and challenges of foreign language education; the question of intercultural education; and our system of assessment and evaluation.

A one-day workshop for young researchers will also be organised within the framework of the congress. An announcement will be made once preparations for the programme have been completed. The educational research to be addressed at the congress includes the following themes:
