The British Educational Research Association (BERA) is the home of educational research in the United Kingdom. We are a membership association committed to advancing knowledge of education by sustaining a strong and high quality educational research community.
Together with our members BERA is working to
Advance Research Quality
Build Research Capacity
Foster Research Engagement.
DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION IS: 31ST JANUARY 2019
For educational researchers the BERA Annual Conference is an important date in their professional year. It provides the opportunity to:
network with existing colleagues
support new colleagues at the start of their careers
establish the beginnings of new collaborations
exchange ideas with like-minded colleagues; and sometimes more profitably, with non-like-minded colleagues
make new links with potential publishers or funders
learn about research outside your own area and investigate possible connections
indulge in discussions of ‘blue sky’ research that reminds you why you are a researcher
Seasoned BERA delegates could probably add several more reasons of their own as to why they return but for most it is about being part of a community of researchers. A community that is dynamic and changes over time; not just in terms of its members but in the way it does things. Participating in a vibrant conference is one way of making sure that you contribute to that change.
