All Day

Technological University Dublin


Spring is a time of re-birth and growth.  The days are getting longer and we are feeling more energised.  Carpe diem!  The UK & IE EERN Spring Colloquium is a chance for the EER community to come together and grow and you are therefore cordially invited to attend our 2nd Spring Colloquium to be held on Friday 3rd May from 10:30-17:30 hours at the Technological University Dublin, Ireland.

The purpose of this free event is to:

  • Provide those who are new to engineering education research with a venue to present their work and receive feedback from others.
  • Facilitate networking and mentoring of Newer Researchers in EER [@EERN_ECR].
  • Engage with the EERN Research Interest Groups (mathematics, research methods and diversity in engineering education) and explore future collaborations and funding opportunities.

In addition to invited contributions, we are accepting proposals for short presentations and research posters. We are particularly interested in contributions focusing on the sharing of ideas, experiences of particular methodologies, and summaries of work in progress. If you are interested in participating, please email a short presentation abstract or poster proposal to: by March 18.
