NeFCA’s Educational Network intends to realize an exchange of ideas on and experiences with educational matters by organizing roundtables and workshops about issues that are relevant for those who manage and teach communication science degree programs at Bachelor’s, Master’s, Research Master’s, and postgraduate levels.
After the successful kick-off at the Etmaal van de Communicatiewetenschap 2019 in Nijmegen, we are looking forward to continue organizing sessions in which we can present and discuss topics of interest for teaching communication science. Therefore, the next call for abstracts for the Etmaal 2020, organized by the University of Amsterdam, will include an additional call, specifically intended for contributions to the sessions organized by the Educational Network.
We will invite contributions from people teaching in the field of communication science that address topics such as innovative teaching methods, successful or not-so successful cases related to teaching communication science, or links between education and the professional field. Contributions may concern a theoretical reflection, a presentation of a specific case or best-practice approach, or empirical research regarding one of these topics.
Please check the Etmaal 2020 website – when online; this pre-announcement is to encourage you to think ahead about possible contributions.
The steering committee of the Educational Network: Martine van Selm (UvA Amsterdam; chair), Martin Tanis (VU Amsterdam), Mariska Kleemans (RU Nijmegen), and Steve Paulussen (UA Antwerpen)
