YoriVET Round Table

On 29 March 2022, the first YoriVET Round Table of 2022 was held online. The participating young researchers had a good exchange about their doctoral projects. Some commonalities and new opportunities for cooperation were identified. Overlaps were found in the areas of teacher training, curriculum development/analysis and comparative studies. The research projects presented are embedded in the following country contexts: China, Germany, Russia, South Africa, Sweden, Thailand.

In addition to the research projects, feedback was also collected on the past webinars with Marianne Teräs and Martin Mulder, which was very positive. Moreover, it was discussed, what topics might be of interest for YoriVET in the future. In order to take into account the interests of the non-attending YoriVET community, an internal survey is currently ongoing on desired topics and/or guest researchers that would help the young researchers in their projects.

If you have any questions about YoriVET - or if you would like to become part of the community - please write an email to: anja.greppmair@uni-bremen.de
