A series of invited speakers share insights into education research methods behind their publications; identifying strategies and explaining the rationale for their approaches. The focus of the day is to empower others to adopt particular research approaches in their own research through a combination of providing exemplars, discussion led activities, and links to further readings. All speakers at MICER are invited, and provide pre-reading in advance of the day so that participants can prepare for topics of particular interest to them.

Details of each session are shown in the graphic. We are incredibly grateful to these speakers, especially those new to our expanded programme who are joining us for this online adventure, who are preparing their presentations at short notice. Further details of talk topics will be added in due course. Sessions run from 11 AM to 5 PM (BST) each day.

Meeting Co-Chairs: Prof Michael Seery, University of Edinburgh and Dr Aishling Flaherty, University of Limerick
