Calling Early Researchers! Win A Free Registration to EDEN’s 2017 Annual Conference in Jönköping, Sweden

elevator pitchBeginning with the EDEN RW9 in Oldenburg, we will be holding an “elevator pitch” competition for early researchers working in the field of open, distance, and online learning. For this competition, we are asking that early researchers prepare a 3-minute elevator pitch and poster that will be used to convince EDEN delegates of the need and/or importance of research on their specific topic. (Research topics should relate to the workshop theme and to open, distance, and/or online learning.) This 3-minute elevator pitch will be presented at a special session during EDEN RW9, where early researchers will “pitch” their research ideas and topics to workshop delegates. These 3-minute elevator pitches will be judged by a special EDEN committee made up of the EDEN vice-president of research, Wim van Petegem, Ulrich Bernath, and the EDEN Secretary General.

Three winners will be selected and awarded a free registration to the next EDEN Annual Conference in Jönköping, Sweden (June 13-16, 2017). Winners will then be required to conduct research on their topic over the months leading up to the conference. At the EDEN Annual Conference in Sweden, they will present the latest results of their research in the form of a research paper. Winners of the elevator pitch competition will be announced at the awards dinner on Wednesday, October 5.

In preparation for the elevator pitch competition, we will hold a special session prior to the competition, where early researchers can engage and consult with EDEN fellows about their research ideas and their elevator pitch. This one-hour workshop will be held on the afternoon of October 4th, before the official start of the EDEN RW9.

To participate in the research-in-process elevator pitch competition:

1, Prepare a poster submission that describes the research idea/topic you will explore in your research. Here it will be important to demonstrate the importance/relevance of your planned research in the field of open, distance, and online learning. Submission guidelines for posters can be found on the EDEN RW9 page.

2, Submit your research idea/topic as a poster. Please write “ELEVATOR PITCH” at the end of your poster title.

3, Join the EDEN Fellow and student researcher exchange and advising session at the EDEN RW9 (afternoon of October 4).

4, Present your elevator pitch for your research idea/topic at the EDEN RW9.

If you have questions about the competition, please get in touch with the Conference Secretariat.

Visit the Oldenburg State Theatre

The dome of the Oldenburg State Theatre has been part of the city’s skyline since 1893. The building is of Neo-Baroque design, and although it has undergone some changes, its essence has been retained.

Three theatres are housed under its roof. In addition to the impressive Grosses Haus with 827 seats, in October 1998 the curtain first rose in the Kleines Haus which seats 350. In the season of 2001/2002, a small studio theatre, the Spielraum with seating for 70, also came into being.

The programme of the Oldenburg State Theatre is coloured by a high-quality, classic repertoire of operas, operettas, musicals, plays, dance performances and concerts as well as its commitment to the artistic avant-garde. Premieres and debut performances are regular features on the State Theatre’s programme.
