I spent the last days in Munich and attented the JURE pre-conference of EARLI. The acronym stands for Junior Researchers (JURE) of the European Association for Research in Learning and Instruction (EARLI).
I had the pleasure to present a Round Table on my PhD topic which currently has the working title “Enhancing teachers’ Assessment for Learning practices”. Since the first submission round was actually quite a while ago (end of October 2012!), there was some change in my presentation (and also in the working title which was “Self-determined learning in the 21st Century Classroom” back then). But I guess that is the process of the PhD – change here and there every once in a while…
Nevertheless, I was nominated for Best Round Table Award of JURE 2013 and therefore had quite some interested people in my presentation and I actually managed to convince them of my work and my presentation style and really got awarded for that.
I am very pleased and happy because not only did I get that Award – no – it was also given to me on my birthday. What a nice present 🙂
For those interested in the Round Table handout:
I am thinking about learning how to code for a while now. Yes, I took computer sciences as a minor subject during my study and yes, I learned a bit Java programming but that is just too long ago now. To be honest, I don’t really know if I remember anything of that because I did not use it for about 5 years now.
I already finished the first unit with the basics and I hope that I will find the time to go through all 12 units. Maybe I really can do some programming then – there are enough ideas 😉
