*CALL FOR WORKSHOPS*
*Connecting Global Education Researchers in Finland: GERIF Early Career
Are you a recent PhD graduate, a PhD student or an eager Master’s student
involved with global education? Wouldn't it be nice to spend time with
people face to face? And what better way to spend time with like minded
global education researchers than in the middle of a beautiful forest in
Jyväskylä? You can share your knowledge through a workshop and attend
others while relaxing and socializing. All of this for free with food and
The Global Education Research in Finland (GERIF) network is organising a
retreat for early career researchers in Global Education (GE) at the*
Konnevesi research station close to Jyväskylä, on 10-11th December 2021*.
The retreat will allow emerging researchers to network with peers in a
relaxed, informal setting and take part in participant-led workshops
regarding new research in GE. In addition to workshops, the retreat
includes social gatherings, meals, and overnight accommodation at the
research station, for which expenses will be covered by GERIF. The retreat
is funded by GENE and FERA, and selected participants may also apply for a
partial travel grant.
The retreat will be held in accordance with all corona restrictions, and
the pandemic situation is continually monitored.
For the workshops, GERIF therefore calls for proposals from final stage
Master’s students, doctoral students, and early stage post-doctoral
students in GE. We are particularly interested in workshops that introduce
your own background and interest within GE, and highly encourage diverse
and interactive activities (such as creating posters, leaflets, videos, or
podcasts). We hope that the workshops will share your knowledge and help us
to map the new, developing GE research in Finland.
Workshop proposals can be submitted via the Google Form:
Proposals should include an outline for a workshop of at least 60 minutes,
as well as its potential contribution to the event and other emerging
researchers in GE. Proposals can be submitted individually or in
collaboration with another GE early career researcher. Further criteria and
guidance can be found from the Google Form. Submissions are currently
accepted and will close on the 8th of October 2021.

The purpose of the GERIF-network is to bring together researchers working
with global education in Finland. We focus on encouraging academic debate
and cooperation, bridging gaps between research and practice as well as
presenting research in an accessible way.
