Situating Strategy Use: Strategic Learning in an Uncertain World 

Wednesday & Thursday, 23-24 November, 2022

In Blended Format

Registrations open 31 March 2022

 

Welcome to
SSU4 Conference 2022

The Fourth International Conference on Situating Strategy Use: Strategic Learning in an Uncertain World will be held in Wellington, New Zealand on 23 - 24 November 2022. This interdisciplinary conference aims to stimulate ongoing research and explore less frequently investigated issues concerning learning strategies by inviting an international community of scholars to participate.

The scope of the conference includes acquisition and use of learning strategies in formal education settings, both inside and outside the classroom, as well as acquisition and use of learning strategies outside of formal education settings, such as at home, in the community and in the workplace.

The conference will highlight three main threads:

  • Learning strategies in an increasingly uncertain world,

  • Learning strategies across the curriculum, and

  • Technology use for strategic learning.

 

In addition, presentations are invited on, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Strategic learning in an uncertain world

  • Learning strategies across the curriculum

  • Theory building in learning strategy research

  • Transformative strategies

  • Strategy instruction and strategy learning 

  • Assessing strategic learning

  • Technology and strategic learning

  • From research to practice: Research applications

  • Researching strategic learning

  • Teacher education for strategic learning

 

We look forward to stimulating discussion and insightful moments in Wellington in November 2022! Please keep yourself updated by visiting this website regularly.

Best regards,
On behalf of the organising committee
