The World Education Research Association (WERA) invites submissions for papers, posters, panel, and symposia for the WERA Focal Meeting to be held from 8-12 September 2024 at the University of Manchester, United Kingdom (UK). Founded in 2009, WERA will be celebrating its 14th anniversary at the Focal Meeting in Manchester, UK. WERA is an association of major national, regional, and specialty education research associations dedicated to sharing scholarship, developing networks, and mutually supporting capacity building. WERA Focal Meetings are embedded in the conference of a WERA Member Association. The WERA 2024 Focal Meeting is an integral part of the 50th annual place-based conference of the British Educational Research Association (BERA) and consists of a programme of paper, poster, panel, and symposia sessions on topics of worldwide emphases and significance. 

The scope of the Focal Meeting is wide in its reach to include studies across the life span from early learning to workforce and adult as well as elderly education and that take place in formal and informal contexts of education and learning. The emphasis of the Focal Meeting is on papers, posters, panel, and symposia with a lens that is worldwide in perspective. Otherwise, there is no restriction on the education research topics appropriate for consideration, although priority will be given to submissions that focus on research and findings addressed to significant trends, issues, and challenges worldwide.

The final deadline to submit is 31 January 2024; 23:59 United Kingdom (GMT+1) time. No further extensions or Call will be published.

Paper, poster, panel, and symposia submissions must be submitted in English through the online portal on the WERA-BERA conference website at “Abstract submission”.
