The Finnish Educational Research Association (FERA) is celebrating its 50 years anniversary in 2017. To celebrate the anniversary FERA will publish in Finnish an edited book on education, learning and participation. The session is based on the ideas expressed in the book adding voices from our colleagues from other countries. The focus of the session will be on participation.
The Brexit and Trump campaigns and their successes have raised anxieties that we have entered – a ‘post-truth’ or ‘post-fact’ world. In Europe and the US, this is associated with the rise of right-wing fundamentalism and a threat to liberal thinking. This symposium explores the phenomenon of the ‘post-fact world’ and its implications for education and research (Peters, 2017).
The purpose of this session is to discuss how the diverse discourses on evidence inform/transform/deconstruct the interrelationships between educational research, policy and practice for the public good in a Glocal context.
Stating that we live in a globalizing world has become a common place in many higher education disciplines, in politics, the media etc., at least in Europe. However, information on the transformational power of curricula good for globalizing general education is scarce. This means that we need research on instruction and the globalizing curriculum, research which is not naive epistemologically, politically, educationally, morally and from an intercultural point of view.
This workshop is designed to provide participants with a generic and basic introduction to the process of journal manuscript preparation and peer review, right through to publication, with specific reference to education journals.
