Call for Papers
Conference Theme: Communication, Collaboration and Commitment
The conference committee is pleased to announce the Call for Papers for the Institute of Education Postgraduate Research Conference 2017. United under the theme of Communication, Collaboration and Commitment, the conference aims to bring together researchers from across the full range of sub-disciplines within education to provide a diverse and dynamic forum for the presentation of ideas. Whether you are seeking to disseminate research findings, develop your thinking about ongoing research, or expand your network, this postgraduate conference will offer a supportive and engaging environment in which to share your research.
