Network symposiums at ECER 2016 – call for proposals

Dear WERA Education Advocacy Network Members*,

We aim for our new WERA network to have a strong presence at ECER 2016 in Dublin, Ireland in August 2016. To that end, we are inviting network members to submit a 400 word abstract for a single authored or co-authored paper proposal which relates to one of our network themes:

  1. Family- Community Engagement
  2. Community Organizing
  3. Teacher and Teacher Union Activism
  4. Leadership for Advocacy

Because all ECER symposium proposals must include papers from at least 3 countries, we need broad international participation by network members to construct panels.

Please send abstracts by Jan. 4th to Lauri Johnson ( and Sue Winton ( to provide time for the convenors to write and submit symposium proposals by the Jan. 15th deadline. We will do our best to create symposia that include all submissions but individuals may be asked to submit individual paper proposals if it is not possible for us to do so.

If you are not interested in presenting a paper but would like to be a chair or discussant for one of the panels, let us know that too.

Thanks, Lauri, Sue, and Howard
