This international conference is organized under the Erasmus+ Key Action 2 project entitled "Promoting Quality and Equity: A Dynamic Approach to School Improvement (PROMQE)" and will be focusing on linking research, policy and practice to promote quality and equity in education. This points to both an expanded range of inquiry and an intensified focus on establishing stronger links among researchers, policy makers, and practitioners in order to promote quality and equity in education. Specifically, the conference will focus on the following themes:

  1. Establishing links between educational effectiveness research and school improvement
  2. Measuring quality and equity in education: different methodological approaches
  3. Methodological advancements in research on school improvement
  4. Educational policy-making and the politics of change and improvement at school and country level
  5. Professional development and professionalization in education

Participants are invited to present proposals discussing approaches to promote quality and equity in education. We encourage proposals that examine how researchers, policy makers and practitioners work together across roles to create more effective schools and systems. Individuals or groups submitting proposals are asked to reflect on one or more of these themes in their papers or presentations.
