FERA Conference on Education, 23–24.11.2023
Åbo Akademi University, Vaasa
Education and research in society – Society in education and research
In relation to the theme Education and research in society – Society in education and research, we want to emphasize well-being, hope, education, and participation. We wish to spark discussions regarding the role of research in society, how research serves teaching practices and is beneficial to society. The theme of the conference is thus linked to three, partly overlapping, ongoing discussions concerning the usefulness of research and education, concerns about well-being and uncertainty in today’s society, and the question of the legitimacy of scientific knowledge.
