Dear Member:

On behalf of the CSSE Board of Directors, I would like to take this opportunity to invite faculty, staff and graduate students from your institution to submit a presentation proposal for the 2015 CSSE Annual Conference in Ottawa, Ontario on 30 May – 3 June 2015 (pre-conferences on 30 May 2015). Held in conjunction with the Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences, this bilingual conference provides an opportunity for discussion of educational issues among practitioners and educational scholars from across the nation.

We encourage participative sessions in various formats including themed, symposium/panel, small round table, multiple paper, single paper, and poster (featuring the use of graphic or other multimedia material). Presentation proposals can be submitted 7 October 2014 – 5 November 2014 by going to our website: http://www.csse-scee.ca/conference/. I have also attached a Call for Presentations flyer for your convenience.

We would appreciate you forwarding this invitation to other faculty, staff and graduate students, and look forward to your participation in this key event for education professionals – The 2015 CSSE Annual Conference.

Sincerely,

Don Klinger, PhD
President
Canadian Society for the Study of Education

Bonjour,

Au nom du conseil d’administration de la SCÉÉ, je tiens à profiter de cette occasion pour inviter les membres du corps professoral, le personnel et les étudiants de votre établissement à soumettre une proposition de communication pour le congrès annuel 2015 de la SCÉÉ, qui aura lieu à Ottawa, en Ontario du 30 mai au 3 juin 2015 (précongrès au 30 mai 2015). Tenu dans le cadre du Congrès des sciences humaines, notre congrès bilingue fournit, aux praticiens et aux chercheurs à l’œuvre un peu partout au pays, l’occasion de se réunir afin de débattre de questions touchant à l’éducation.

Nous encourageons le recours à des séances participatives de divers types : séances thématiques, colloques/discussions en groupe, groupement de plusieures communications libres, et présentations visuelles (à l’aide de matériel graphique ou multimédia, par exemple). Les propositions de communication peuvent être soumises entre le 7 octobre et le 5 novembre 2014 par le biais de notre site Web au http://www.csse-scee.ca/congres.  Vous trouverez également ci-joint un feuillet invitant éducateurs et chercheurs à soumettre un projet de communication.

Nous vous saurions gré de transmettre cette invitation aux membres du corps professoral, au personnel et aux étudiants de votre établissement et espérons que vous serez des nôtres à cet événement clé pour les spécialistes de l’éducation : le congrès annuel 2015 de la SCÉÉ.

Cordiales salutations.

Société canadienne pour l’étude de l’éducation

CIDER Session October 1

From the inbox this past week…

Email not displaying correctly? View it in your browser.
Dear CIDER Member,

We invite you to the October CIDER session, the second session of special ten-part Community of Inquiry Webinar Series. This free, online session will feature Madelaine Befus, a doctoral student at Athabasca University.

Title: Meta-analysis of the COI Framework

This presentation will focus on exploring the shape and scope of the corpus of CoI research literature. The Community of Inquiry Research Integration and Practice Alliance recently completed phase one of an applied meta-analysis of 73 quantitative and mixed-methods empirical studies using the CoI survey tool.

Preliminary results of this study confirm the CoI framework continues to resonate with post-secondary educational researchers. Separate and on-going doctoral dissertation research to explain and define the phenomena and influence of the CoI framework on education that brings further definition to this expansive and rapidly expanding body of literature will be shared.

An advance reading for this session is available at our website:
http://cider.athabascau.ca/sessions

When: Wednesday, October 1, 2014 – 11am to 12noon Mountain Time (Canada)

Where: Online through Adobe Connect at:

The CIDER Community of Inquiry Webinar Series will include monthly sessions running from September 2014 to June 2015. These sessions will feature presentations by leading researchers on the CoI framework and its application to blended, distance, and online learning. The Community of Inquiry website at http://coi.athabascau.ca will act as a companion site for the series and includes a wealth of background materials and further readings.
