Inaugural PESN conference – 21 January 2022

On 21 January 2022, we will be holding our inaugural PESN conference. It will take place online (on Zoom).

We invite all Postgraduate research students studying any aspect of education to submit an abstract for consideration (max. 300 words) by 8 November 2021 to

To ensure maximum time is available for questions, answers and discussion, this conference will be based on a flipped webinar format. Each participant will be asked to write a blog post 1500-2000 words, which will be uploaded prior to the conference to allow time for attendees to read in advance. We will also invite attendees to submit questions in advance so that presenters have time to prepare their answers.

On the day of the conference presenters will have 5mins to verbally present the key elements from their paper (with or without slides) before answering any questions and entering into further discussion for the remaining 15mins. We hope this will encourage lively but fruitful engagement with research topics.

There is no ‘theme’ for the conference other than an invite to postgraduates studying and researching education to come and present your developing research – whatever stage in the process you are at.

We aim to offer a welcoming, inclusive and supportive space for everyone.
