NERA Conference 2022

Reykjavik, Iceland


Education and involvement in precarious times


The Nordic Educational Research Association (NERA) strives to promote educational inquiry and supports the use of research to enhance education. NERA 2022 conference focuses on the impact of COVID pandemic on education and opportunities for transformation and change. During the pandemic, educators generally experienced a need to modify their teaching, and many have been engaged in using new and different teaching and learning facilities. This has, among other things, triggered unforeseen results regarding general changes in pedagogy and didactics with a switch to a more flexible approach to teaching and learning, focusing on a higher degree of involvement of both teachers and students. The conferences will cover creative and fruitful discussion on research and development, policies and practices in education, and potential involvement from diverse perspectives.
