Poster session
at the 27th DGfE congress,
15. - 18. March 2020 in Cologne


The poster session aims to present and display research projects in the educational science in a graphically accessible and aesthetically pleasing way. Works that are not yet published are especially suited to be presented as part of the poster session. Thematically, the posters may be designed freely as they are not bound to the congress topic of OPTIMISATION. Researchers in qualification stages are explicitly invited to submit poster contributions in order to exchange views about their works with other congress participants. In turn, congress participants are invited to learn about current works in educational science during the central poster session on 17th March 2020 and engage in conversations with the authors of the exhibited posters.


Time frame and schedule

The poster session, as part of the German Educational Research Association (DGfE) congress in Cologne, is planned for 17th March 2020, from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm.


During this time frame, the posters will be exhibited in separate rooms arranged thematically and introduced by the authors in short pointed presentations. These short presentations will be guided by the introduction and chair of reviewers. Following the presentation phase, there is opportunity for authors and congress participants to discuss the works more profoundly in individual conversations.
