PhD pre-conference

For the first time in the history of WALS, a PhD conference is organised by and for PhD students researching Lesson Study throughout the world. The aim of this day is to share knowledge and experiences relating to the various international PhD projects on Lesson Study as well as to get to know each other and to initiate and stimulate future collaboration. We hope that this pre-conference day will be a leverage to a broader and tighter international Lesson Study PhD community.

The pre-conference will consist of several keynotes as well as interactive sessions about the work of the invited PhD’s and junior researchers. The Beijing WALS 2018 conference already featured topical PhD symposia on ‘Research methodology in Lesson Study Research’ which were hugely relevant to PhD students and junior researchers alike. The theme of this first PhD conference aligns with the conference theme and this pre-conference is organised by PhD students from the partner universities belonging to LS NL. Registration for the pre-conference is available for a small fee.
