At the conference, there is a thematic group on global education research with papers both

takes place during the Special Interest Group (SIG) time slot, also online. We will inform

programme is published.
We warmly invite everyone to join both the paper sessions and the SIG meeting – and the
GERIF network in broader terms! For anyone interested, the GERIF network provides
opportunities to engage in the field of global education research and to promote dialogue
between research and practice.
New coordinators for the network will be elected at the meeting. Please let us know either

WEBINAR ON THEORY-PRACTICE RELATIONSHIP OCTOBER 22th
Virtual seminar: Challenging the Theory-Practice Divide in the Context of Development
Education Centres in England.
This event, hosted on Zoom, will see Dr Andrea Bullivant, a practitioner based with a
Development Education Centre (DEC), discuss her research which aims to address the lack of
knowledge about conceptualisations of Development Education and Global Learning (DEGL) and
the theory-practice relationship from the perspectives of practitioners.
The seminar will be of interest to practitioners, as well as researchers, students and
other actors in the field of DEGL with an interest in theory or practice.
This event is part of a series of seminars run by ANGEL partners the Development Education
Research Centre (DERC), a UCL Institute of Education research centre that acts as the hub
for knowledge generation, new thinking and quality output on development education, global
learning and global citizenship.
