Hello, I am Nasser Mansour, a lecturer in Science Education at Exeter University. I am involved in an international research project about Science Education for Diversity. My main research interests are in aspects of teaching and learning in science, including cultural issues and science education, cooperative learning, STS (Science, Technology and Society education), controversial issues, scientific literacy, the relationship between religion and science education, constructivism in science education, teaching about the nature of science; science teachers’ beliefs and practices, teacher professional development; multi-cultural studies in science education, Grounded Theory, ICT and Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning CSCL. I am the chair for JURE conference 2011. I am looking forward to seeing and welcoming you in Exeter.
Hi, I’m Lindsay Hetherington, a Teacher Education Research Fellow at Exeter University. I am currently completing my PhD in using Complexity Theory to understand curriculum change, and I teach on the PGCE (teacher training) in Secondary Science, and on the MEd Professional Practice programme here at Exeter. Before coming to Exeter, I taught Science to pupils aged 11-18. I joined JURE last year, when I was asked to work on the JURE pre-conference organisation and I’m really looking forward to the conference. It’s been a great opportunity to meet more people involved in European Educational Research.
Hi, my name is Dirk Bissbort and I work as a visiting research fellow at the Educational Technology Research Unit (LET; http://www.let.oulu.fi/) at the Department of Educational Sciences and Teacher Education at the University of Oulu in Finland. At the LET, I am involved in the ADDRESS project (‘Adaptive Motivation Regulation in Individual and Socially Shared Learning Situations’). My PhD studies (at the Faculty of Educational Science, University of Koblenz-Landau, Germany) are on dynamic forces of self-direction and regulation in learning and the impact of the learning environment. My research interests are motivation, self-direction and regulation in learning, innovative learning arrangements and educational research methodology. My main roles in the JURE International Committee are the organisation of the JURE workshops (with Janine) and the organisation of the JURE website (with Astrid). How I got in touch with EARLI and JURE? In 2006, I was the student host of the first Summer School of the SIG ‘Emotion and Motivation’ in Germany, and I attended also the Summer School 2008 in Finland. Once, Gerda just asked me if I would like to apply for the organisation of JURE 2011 ?! See you in Exeter and enjoy the conferences!
My name is Helena Cristina Bilimoria, I am from Portugal. I work in Instituto Piaget - ESE Jean Piaget/Arcozelo, in Vila NOva de Gaia, near Oporto. I give lectures about "human development and learning", "SPSS" and "Edutional evaluation" in post-graduations and Masters in Special Education. I also supervise master theses and monographies of post-graduation. I do research in the field of giftedness. My interests are in the field of giftedness, metacognition and self-regulated learning (the last two were also the subject of my doctoral thesis). I joined JURE 3 years ago, when I had a marvellous experience as a presenter in the 12th JURE conference in 2008, in Leuven. In the international JURE Committee, I act as "contact person", that is, the person that replies to most of the e-mail messages, and also, in a team work with Janine Van der Rijt, I am organising the "Best of JURE" awards.
My name is Gerda Hagenauer and I am working as a research assistant at the University of Salzburg (Department of Educational Research) in Austria. My research is about learning emotions and its association with students’ learning and achievement. I am also interested in the teacher-student-relationship and how it affects students’ learning. Methodologically I mainly follow a quantitative approach. In the international committee of JURE I am responsible, together with Astrid, for the submission and review process.
My name is Janine van der Rijt. I am working as a PhD candidate in the department of Educational Research and Development at Maastricht University's School of Business and Economics, the Netherlands. Currently, I am completing my PhD. In my PhD research project, I investigate the conditions to support learning and development of professionals in the workplace. I particularly focus on the role of informal feedback processes. I have attended previous JURE and EARLI conferences, and I am pleased to now be a member of the International Committee of JURE. In the Committee I am responsible for the organisation of the Best-of-JURE Awards (with Helena) and I work on the organisation of the workshops (with Dirk). I am looking forward to the conference! See you in Exeter!
Hi there, my name is Astrid Wichmann. I am working as post-doc research assistant at the Ruhr University Bochum, Germany at the Department of Educational Psychology. I am interested in the fields of computer-supported inquiry learning and collaborative learning. From my former experiences of working in EU-financed projects, I already know how much fun it is to work in an interdisciplinary and international team. I am excited to be part of the JURE 2011 international committee, because I am an EARLI fan since EARLI 2005 in Cyprus. Together with Gerda, I am responsible for the JURE review process and together with Dirk I am taking care of the JURE website.
