About the conference

The conference aims to provide opportunities for:

  • research students (Honours, Masters and PhD) to present their work-in-progress in a supportive atmosphere,
  • staff and research students in Faculty of Education to know more about research carried out across different campuses of the Faculty,
  • staff, research students and their peers to meet and share in academic conversations.

Who can present?

All research students in the Faculty of Education are invited to present a paper or a poster and contribute to our research community.

Call for papers are announced via students' emails.

Students who do not want to present a paper or poster can still attend the conference and contribute to the discussion.
