Interaction in Educational Research
FERA Conference on Education Helsinki

The Finnish Educational Research Association (FERA) conference is an unmissable opportunity for scholars and practitioners interested in education and learning. The conference aims at creating a forum on themes related to interaction in educational research in Finland and elsewhere. In 2012 the FERA Conference on Education is targeted more than ever at international audiences. The conference includes interest groups and presentations in Finnish, Swedish and English.

Interaction is an essential part of any education and schooling, teaching and learning. The conference organizing committee welcomes presentations and interest groups that approach interaction in education, teaching and learning from a wide range of perspectives. Research on interaction, expressed through words, body movements or technology, can be conducted in different learning environments. The structures, processes, roles, identities and positions of educational, teaching and learning interaction are multifarious. Varying situations create multiple challenges and possibilities, such as encountering different people and intercultural communication. Educational fields can thus be seen from the perspective of “wholeness” of learning.

Professor Kirsi Tirri (kirsi.tirri [at] acts as the conference organizing committee chair.
