The DISEA research network of AFinLA organises an online research seminar

What: Research seminar for doctoral researchers organised online (via Zoom)

Goal: To provide doctoral researchers with a low threshold forum to present and discuss their research in progress

When: 29 April 2022 (please note the change of the seminar date), at 10:00–16:15

Target group:

  • Presenters: Doctoral researchers who work within Bakhtinian dialogical, sociocultural / cultural-historical theory, and/or an ecological approach (or other similar theoretical perspectives) as theoretical bases of their research and focus on studying language learning, teaching, and assessment.
  • Audience: Researchers, teachers or others interested in researching language learning, teaching and assessment.

Professor Matthew E. Poehner, Pennsylvania State University, USA, will give a keynote speech at the end of the seminar at 15:00–16:00.

Registration: (as a presenter or audience member) until 4 April 2022:

Instructions for presenters: Your presentation and abstract can be in Finnish or English. Your presentation can focus on any topic you are currently working on (i.e., research in progress): a research article in progress, an analysis, a challenging topic you are struggling with, and where you would like feedback from the academic community. Presentations of completed research are also welcome, but the focus of the seminar is research in progress.

Each speaker will have 40 minutes but at least half of this time should be reserved for a discussion with the audience.

There will be room for three presentations. If there are more registered speakers, we will evaluate the abstracts based on specific criteria.

Write to us if you have any questions and feel free to forward this invitation to interested researchers.

Welcome to the seminar!
