Dear EARLI colleagues,
As you can see, this second official JURE & EARLI 2011 conference newsletter is a mine of information! First of all, mark these three very important dates your diaries – the first one is coming up this Friday. Next we will give you a JURE 2011 pre-conference update: submission and review news, more information about the workshops, the Best-of-JURE-Awards and, of course, the social programme. We’ll also update you on the EARLI 2011 academic programme, and the JURE-EARLI virtual conference that is being organised in the months to come. The final chapter of this newsletter tells you everything there is to know about traveling to Exeter, where to stay during the conference, facilities on campus, and an overview of the conference fees and the general terms & conditions that apply for both conferences. We’ll make sure you know everything there is to know about the upcoming JURE and EARLI conference in Exeter, this Summer!
1 April ‘EARLY BIRD’ JURE MEMBERSHIP APPLICATION DEADLINE
1 April - Participants who are eligible for JURE membership (see http://www.earli.org/Junior_Researchers_(JURE)/membership) are asked to complete (payment + sending the proof of student status to the EARLI office) their JURE membership application at the latest on 1 April. That way we avoid problems when the early bird deadline is approaching. If your membership application is not completed, we cannot guarantee the reduced EARLI bird registration fee. Please note that we do not refund membership fees to participants who became a FULL EARLI member throughout the registration process, but are in fact eligible for JURE membership. JURE membership requires an enrollment in a master or a PhD programme. Graduates, who received their PhD within the last two years, can also apply for JURE membership.
22 April - The early bird deadline has been extended to 22 April. After that date, the EARLI 2011 prices for registration go up by 100€. The prices for the JURE 2011 conference stay the same. 1 May is the presenters’ registration deadline. Participants who will actively present during the JURE and/or EARLI 2011 conference need to register before that date to stay included in the conference programme. Registration for both the JURE 2011 and the EARLI 2011 conference is through http://www.earli2011.org.
1 May – Active participants who will present during the EARLI and/or JURE conference in Exeter this Summer need to register before 1 May to remain included in the conference programme.
JURE Pre-Conference 2011
JURE 2011 Submission and review process
The first review round was finished in January 2011. Voluntarily participating junior reviewers in the field of learning and instruction supported by the members of the JURE local committee and the international committee gave feedback on the proposals of the participants and decided on the acceptance, rejection or format change. The participants were informed about the results of the first review round in January. At the moment they are writing on their full paper, on their handout if they are presenting in a round table session or they are designing their posters. Papers are already grouped into sessions in order to be able to start the second review round in April. The second review round for papers will include feedback on the paper by a senior researcher and a peer. In May, the second review round for posters and round tables will start. Posters and round tables will only be reviewed by a peer.
JURE 2011 Workshops
JURE 2011 organises 8 workshops during the first day of the pre-conference, Monday August 29, 17.30-19.30h.
The workshops cover a range of topics related to conducting and communicating educational research. They are run by experienced facilitators in their fields and are an excellent opportunity to work with experts to develop your research in a friendly and thought-provoking environment.
We are very proud to be able to already announce the following workshops:
• Conducting Effective and Efficient Conference Presentations
Daniel Fasko, Jr., Bowling Green State University
Filip Dochy, University of Leuven

Full description of the workshops and their presenters will be announced on our website soon.
Because the space is limited, this event requires registration. Registration for the workshops will open soon. Please check our website for further details.
JURE has a long tradition in giving awards to the best contributions. At each JURE Conference, Best-of-JURE Awards are presented for the best Paper, Poster and Round-table session. With the Best-of-JURE awards we want to support and motivate junior researchers in their career.
Best Paper Award
For the Best Paper Award, 3 papers will be selected for nomination (based on the reviewer evaluations). The nominees will present their papers in the special Best-of-JURE session at the start of EARLI on Tuesday. Paper and presentation are considered equally in the final decision on the award. An independent jury will decide on the winner of the award.
Best Poster and Round Table Award
Based on the (junior) reviewer evaluations and an independent jury, awards will be given for the best Poster presentation and Best Round Table presentation.
The winners in each award category will be announced at the presidential address on Tuesday.
JURE 2011 Social Programme
The social programme is a vital part of the JURE Conference - a chance for early career researchers to meet researchers from across the world and to build networks and friendships. We also want participants to enjoy themselves and to get a flavour of Exeter, and of the South West of England. With this in mind, we have designed the social programme to be informal, flexible and fun.
• Sunday excursions
Given that Conference is short and intensive, Sunday will be the main opportunity to explore Exeter and the surrounding area. We have two trips to choose from, both designed to allow participants to get to know each other in a relaxed environment.
Trip 1: Boat trip from Exeter Quay to the Double Locks Inn (up to 55 participants) We will hire out a boat for a late afternoon cruise on the Exeter Canal, with the opportunity for walking and drinks at the Double Locks, the head of a beautiful nature reserve and bird sanctuary. A JURE local group member will lead a party from Streatham Campus, and maps will be provided. The trip will last around 2 hours.
Trip 2: Beach trip by train to Teignmouth (up to 100 participants). A trip to a classic English seaside town via one of England’s most beautiful railways. Participants can explore by themselves or to tour the town with JURE local group members. There will be several designated meeting places and times, and maps and guides will be provided. Teignmouth offers a range of attractions: a beach, a harbour, a pier and arcade, adventure golf, a lovely range of local shops, and good cafes, pubs and restaurants - including an excellent fish and chip shop. Participants are invited to meet and form groups for travel at the JURE reception desk, and will then be free to leave and return when they want.
• Monday - JURE Dinner
JURE participants will also be welcomed with an inclusive dinner on Monday 29th, held at Holland Hall, Streatham Campus, starting around 8pm. This beautiful space has views over Exeter.
Also in an informal style, the dinner will offer a good range of hot, self-service, buffet food - encouraging participants to circulate. There will be a bar in the room for alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. There will also be opportunities for further socialising after the dinner, which will be announced closer to the time.
• Rest of the week
To avoid clashing with the EARLI social programme, JURE will not run a separate programme all week. However, the guidebook will give suggestions for where the mostly younger participants of JURE might like to go, and we will establish an informal network of message boards (physical and virtual) so that participants can organise and meet up with others. JURE committee members will try their best to lead by example in making sure participants have a good time!

EARLI 2011 Biennial Conference
The review process for Exeter 2011 is now complete, and we are extremely grateful for the hard work of the reviewing team. Before April, everyone who submitted a proposal for EARLI 2011 will have received an email from Debra Myhill, our conference manager, informing you of the review decision that has been made regarding your proposal.
The Local Committee is now very busy preparing all the accepted submissions to create what we hope will be a lively and intellectually stimulating conference. Certainly we are impressed by the range and quality of the proposals. Presenters may well want to look at the Conference formats, included below, so that you prepare appropriately. You will notice, for example, that symposia have three papers, not four, to allow time for discussion – so discussants will need to be very expert at encouraging participation from the audience! We are using the very successful poster and round table formats used in Amsterdam: again these are intended to bring academics together for fruitful research conversations. Don’t forget to check the updated conference website: all EARLI 2011 keynote speakers’ abstracts are now online on http://www.earli2011.org/nqcontent.cfm?a_id=428.
=> Conference formats:
The range of formats is designed to create a diverse and lively academic atmosphere and to allow for different preferences in style of presentation. Each of the formats outlined below are equally valuable, but serve different purposes.
Symposia provide an opportunity to present research on one topic, providing a coherent set of papers for discussion. Symposia sessions are directed by a chairperson, involving three presenters and one discussant, from at least three different countries.
Timing: a symposium is scheduled for one and half hours, comprising 20 minutes presentation per speaker, ten minutes for the discussant, and 20 minutes for open discussion.
Room set-up: lecture theatre or large seminar room with computer and data projector
Paper sessions are oral presentations of four papers, followed by a discussion with the audience. It is important that empirical papers have data and results, or they will not be accepted. Research which is at an earlier stage is very suitable for Round Table or Poster sessions. Theoretical papers, of course, are welcome.
Timing: paper sessions are scheduled for one and a half hours, normally with four presenters, each with approximately 20 minutes for their presentation.
Room set-up: lecture theatre or large seminar room with computer and data projector
Interactive poster sessions involve five or six posters, visually presenting research studies. A short oral presentation of about 5 minutes for each poster is given to an audience gathered as a group. After the authors’ brief presentation, an in-depth discussion between them and the audience follows. The Poster sessions offer researchers the chance to present their work in a visual format and offer more opportunities for interaction and discussion.
Timing: poster sessions are scheduled for one and a half hours, following the format above.
Room set-up: seminar room with wall space to display posters. Please bring posters in A4 or A3 format, and materials for fixing to the wall will be provided.
Round table sessions offer opportunities for a more discursive exploration of research issues. About five or six presenters will be allocated to each session. Each researcher explains the research and the research issue, and invites the participants to help to discuss emerging data or to solve a research issue or problem.
Room set-up: seminar room with tables board-room style
Panel Discussions provide an opportunity for public discussion amongst a selected group of panelists. Central to the success of a panel discussion is the choice of a good topic as the focus for discussion and panellists who bring differing perspectives and are confident in making clear arguments in a live situation. Panels should comprise a maximum of five scholars who present their arguments; a discussant offers critical comment on the arguments made and the discussion is opened up to the participating audience. Timing: panel discussions are scheduled for one and a half hours.
Room set-up: lecture theatre or large seminar room with computer and data projector
ICT Demonstrations allow presenters to display, explain and familiarise users with a potentially useful teaching or research tool or method. The presentation may include references to completed research, but the point of the session is to demonstrate the tool, not present the research for criticism. The audience may offer their viewpoints and share their experiences with similar tools or different tools for the same purpose.
Timing: demonstrations are scheduled for one and a half hours.
Room set-up: seminar room
Workshops provide an opportunity to familiarise participants with some aspect of research or teaching practice, so that questioning and discussion are suitably informed. Learning-by-doing occupies most of the session, and any presentations are brief. Adequate time for reflective discussion is important.
Timing: workshops are scheduled for one and a half hours.
Room set-up: seminar room
JURE-EARLI Virtual conference
This year the 2011 EARLI conference hosts a series of online activities prior to the conference in Exeter, UK. On the online platform, freely available, you will have the opportunity to meet other Earli-JURE members, and conference attendees. As a special treat you can also join a number of online hot seat dialogues hosted by conference keynote speakers. This will start in May. With this initiative we hope to provide a platform for everyone interested in research in education to get to know each other, talk about research and use these discussions to prepare papers or symposiums for the Earli conference in Exeter.
Take advantage of the online environment to make connections and arrange to meet in person in Exeter.
The confirmed hot seats are:
• Shaaron Ainsworth 2nd May
• Mary James & Andrew Pollard 2nd May
• Julie Dockrell 9th May
• Carol D. Lee 16th May
More information and an invitation will follow soon.
Spring is bursting into life here in Exeter, with daffodils, camellias, and primroses in full bloom and green, green, green everywhere… by the time you arrive in August, we hope it will be full summer! Exeter is a lovely place to visit as there is so much to do in the area – and we are busy preparing a lively social programme and further information on how to enjoy being in this area. We have a fantastic coastline, north and south of Exeter, and the World Heritage Jurassic Coast can easily be visited by bus from Exeter. So you may fancy a spot of fossil-hunting on the beach at Charmouth? Alternatively, at the end of a busy conference day, you can take a train down the Exe estuary to Exmouth and catch the sunset on an evening cruise on the river. For those of a more trendy disposition (unlike me), Exeter has a vibrant, and safe, club scene so you might want to go down to the Exeter Quay and sample the night life. Or just settle down for a local beer in a good Devon pub! Keep visiting the conference website as we provide more information.
How to get to Exeter
NB August 29 is a Bank Holiday in England so travel on that day may be running on more restricted timetables – do check!
Exeter is an important route centre for the South-West of England and is well-connected to London by both train and road networks.
The two nearest airports to Exeter are Exeter International Airport and Bristol International Airport, both small airports with few queues, but also less choice over flights. Check the websites for more information about airlines and destinations.
Exeter International Airport runs daily flights to Amsterdam Schiphol and Paris Charles de Gaulle which are international hubs. Delegates travelling long-distance might consider flying into Amsterdam or Paris, then picking up a flight to Exeter. From the airport, it is a relatively short taxi ride to the City Centre and University, and there is a local bus available to the city centre. Website: http://www.exeter-airport.co.uk/all-destinations#country5
Bristol airport offers more flights from across Europe. Getting to Exeter takes about an hour by train, with a regular coach connection, the Bristol Airport Flyer Express Coach, available from the airport to Bristol Temple Meads train station. Website: http://www.bristolairport.co.uk/flight-information/destinations.aspx
Heathrow, of course, is the UK’s principal airport and it is likely that many of you will travel via this route. From Heathrow, there are several options for getting to Exeter at varying price levels. The mainline train service from London Paddington to Exeter St David’s station involves no changes and the fast trains take just over 2 hours. Website: http://www.heathrowairport.com/portal/page/Heathrow^General^Flight+information^Destinations+and+airlines/
1. Take the Heathrow Express from Heathrow into London Paddington and take the First Great Western train down to Exeter (fastest but most expensive option)
2. Take the Heathrow Connect from Heathrow into London Paddington and take the First Great Western train down to Exeter (a slower cheaper connection into London)
3. Take the Railair coach from Heathrow to Reading train station and pick up the First Great Western train down to Exeter (quite fast and quite cheap! This is the option the locals use!)
4. Take the National Express Coach from Heathrow to Exeter City Centre (cheapest option; but also involves no changes so very trouble free!)
NOTICE: Monday 29th August 2011is a UK Bank Holiday. This means timings and prices may vary from the normal published information. You are advised to double check the information.
Refreshments: On most train services there are buffet trolleys offering drinks and snacks. A few trains offer a restaurant carriage – this needs to be booked in advance. Bus/Coach services do not offer a refreshment facility.
=> Train Operating Companies
! Pre-booking recommended: is cheaper and ensures availability. The main railway station, served by main line routes, is Exeter St. Davids. There are other smaller railway stations in Exeter that service local routes. Keep hold of train tickets to use to get out of electronic gates at destination stations. Save receipts/booking confirmations because the machine will not return the ticket as you leave the train station.
1. First Great Western
London Paddington - Exeter St. Davids (about 2 hours and 20 minutes - duration may vary)
Bristol International Airport - Exeter St. Davids (1 hour and 45 minutes, including the transfer from the airport to Bristol Temple Meads)
