6th International
OOF-TAS Collective Symposium

1-2 September, 2019

The 6th symposium for the OOF-TAS Collective will be held in Hamburg, Germany, on September 1-2, 2019, prior to the ECER Conference.

The theme for the symposium is ‘Delving deep and wide into teaching out-of-field: Using evidence to inform change’.

This theme focuses on the idea that changes in practice and policy are best brought about through evidence-based research. A mounting body of evidence about the out-of-field phenomenon is emerging from a number of countries. But what else needs to be known? And for what impact?

We encourage submissions that report on research and contribute to our understanding of what additional research is needed, the challenges of doing research in this field, and how empirical evidence can inform practice and policy changes. An outcome of this meeting will be to build on the ideas from our first meeting in 2014 and come up with a framing of future research that can inform our individual and joint research endeavours.

Possible triad paper review session

The group have submitted a proposal for a Special Issue. If this proposal is successful we will include some time to give feedback on drafts of these papers. This would involve supporting each other by reviewing and providing feedback on papers. This may also be open to people with papers not involved in the Special Issue but who have papers and would like feedback. Draft articles will need to be prepared and distributed prior to the symposium. Further information will come closer to the time if this is to go ahead.
