Call for proposals: CHER 32nd Annual Conference

28th February, 2019

The 32nd annual CHER-Conference will take place from 28 August to 30 August, 2019 at the University of Kassel and will be organized by the International Centre for Higher Education Research Kassel in Germany. The theme of this year’s conference is ‘Theories and Methods in Higher Education Research’. The field of higher education research is growing and increasingly relying on various disciplinary and interdisciplinary theoretical approaches and advanced methods to explain higher education outcomes and policy issues. In the recent years, there has been an increased tendency towards using more and more theories and advanced methods in higher education research. Application of theory and advanced qualitative and quantitative methods in higher education research is also significant to establish the potential and innovation of higher education research and to address methodological challenges as associated with international comparative research, diversity of student body, policy implementation and evaluation, secondary data usage and analyses.

 
Taking into account these recent developments and challenges, this year’s CHER conference pursues two aims: First, to critically discuss theories and methods employed in higher education research. Second, to discuss the relevance of recent theoretical and methodological developments in other scientific disciplines and interdisciplinary research areas for higher education research. The abstracts can either focus on theories and methods or the nexus of theories and methods. All three perspectives are equally important for scientific innovation and sustainable progress in the interdisciplinary field of higher education research.
 
Submitting Proposals
Please submit your abstracts by email to cher2019@incher.uni-kassel.de by 28th February, 2019. The abstracts should not exceed 500 words.

All abstracts will be reviewed and applicants will receive a notification of acceptance by 31st March, 2019. The deadline for the Early Bird Registration is 15th May, 2019.
