Second Seminar of Nordic Network in Engineering Education Research
Mustion linna, Finland, 25-27.5.2011
The aim of NNEER is to develop Engineering Education Research in the
Nordic and Baltic countries and to increase collaboration among
researchers and doctoral students in these countries. The network also
actively collaborates with SEFI EER working group. NNEER is supported
by NordForsk through a three-year grant.
The kick-off seminar of NNEER was held in May 2010 in Sweden to
initiate the network. 21 researchers met for two days to present
their research and discuss joint future activities. The second NNEER
seminar will continue this collaboration. The goals of the
seminar include identifying joint research questions, which could be
tackled in international collaboration and/or with different
methodological approaches so that the strengths of different
research groups or individual researchers could support each
other. We also aim to discuss how we could jointly support
research training and PhD work instruction in the area.
The seminar is organized in Svartå Manor
(http://www.mustionlinna.fi/) starting at lunch on Wed 25th of May and
ending at lunch on Friday 27th. The venue is located about 60
kilometers to the west of Helsinki. Bus transformation will be
arranged to/from Helsinki Center and Aalto University Otaniemi Campus
area on Wednesday and Friday.
The seminar is funded by NNEER. There is no participation fee and
