The 2021 SERA Conference (#seraconf21) will be another free online event.

Beginning on Monday 22nd November, we will commence our conference week with a keynote by Dr Pauline Stephen, Chief Executive and Registrar, General Teaching Council Scotland.

While we had hoped for our 2021 Conference to be in-person, this year we have decided to host a series of online events to showcase the incredible work of our SERA Networks on the theme of International Themes in Educational Research (22nd-25th November 2021).

While we cannot meet in person this year, we are delighted to extend an invitation to you to join us across the week for what promises to be an engaging and stimulating series of online presentations and discussions.
