On July 4, 2024, the Center for Research on Education and School Development will host the 9th Dortmund Symposium on Empirical Educational Research on the topic of “Socio-emotional and cognitive development in learning: educational goals in competition?!”. Theoretical approaches and current findings will be presented and discussed to address the question of whether these two educational goals are actually in conflict or to what extent they can support each other given certain conditions. Taking into account the normative task that all learners should acquire basic competencies, we consider the role of socio-emotional aspects – such as emotions, motivation and well-being – in learning and the question of how socio-emotional learning can be designed for heterogeneous groups. It will be discussed how contemporary educational research can enrich the multidimensional educational process to address the various educational goals.
We are pleased to welcome distinguished researchers to Dortmund to discuss current research findings and debates in a discursive, interdisciplinary format. Speakers include Prof. Dr. Yvonne Anders, Prof. Sara Rimm-Kaufman, Ph.D., Prof. Dr. Elsbeth Stern, Prof. Dr. Florian Schmiedek, Prof. Dr. Anne Frenzel, Prof. Dr. Carmen Zurbriggen, and Prof. Dr. Ricarda Steinmayr. Selected early career researchers will have the opportunity to present their work in the form of posters. Register now!
