HelsinkiNode is a symposium and bi-monthly online seminar series funded by the Helsinki Institute for Social Sciences and Humanities (HSSH). HelsinkiNode promotes and enhances the use of network analysis in research on teaching and learning bringing together professionals from different disciplines to build new collaborations and initiate research applying network analysis.
The two-day symposium will be held at the Faculty of Educational Sciences, University of Helsinki on 6.-7.6. 2023. The symposium will have invited speakers with expertise in network analysis and presentations showcasing educational research applying network analysis by researchers from the University of Helsinki and from other universities in Finland and in the Nordic and the Baltic countries. Additionally, there will be a panel discussion with experts and questions from the participants.
We invite researchers to present their work in network analysis. Deadline for abstracts is 30.4.2023.
The symposium will start discussions on applying networks and to the practical and theoretical issues regarding network analysis in educational research. One such key issue is how to connect educational theories and network analysis methodologies in a meaningful way.
Following the HelsinkiNode symposium we invite proposals for a special issue of Nordic Studies in Education focusing on Network Analysis Methods in Research on Teaching and Learning. Both theoretical and empirical research is welcome. The topics of the papers could be from, but not limited to the topics of the symposium.
More information about the special issue and the online seminar series will be published on the symposium website after the event.
