The relationship between theory and practice is a primary concern within the field of Education. Researchers are often criticized for being too far removed from authentic, everyday classroom experiences. In contrast, teachers may have little time to incorporate theory into their practice. Nevertheless, theory and practice reciprocally influence each other on multiple levels forming a symbiotic relationship that is in need of exploration.
The EGSS 2014 conference is a venue for all educational researchers and practitioners to share their ideas and contribute their understanding of the complexities of this relationship. It is a peer-reviewed conference and organized by the education graduate students at McGill University. This year we hope to provide an inclusive environment where teachers, undergraduates and graduate students feel motivated to share their work.
