Every year, the editorial board of Educational Review selects an ‘article of the year’ – the article published in the journal during the year which offers the most original and significant contribution to our field of knowledge. And each year we invite the winner of the award to give a seminar at the University of Birmingham.

As we postponed last year’s event, in June we’ll be hosting a double seminar featuring the 2014 and 2015 winners of the prize. Both winners addressed higher education in some form: the first focused on young people’s aspirations for HE, while the second concentrated specifically on recent changes in teacher education.

Seminar 1

Carol Fuller, from the University of Reading – based on her article ‘Social capital and the role of trust in aspirations for higher education.’

Carol explores the role of social capital and trust and the ways that young people generate resources that promote a positive educational identity and, consequently, educational ambitions and goals. http://www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.1080/00131911.2013.768956 

Seminar 2

Margery McMahon and colleagues from the University of Glasgow – based on their article ‘Reshaping teacher education through the professional continuum’.

Margery and her colleagues focus on shifts in the way that teacher education is conceptualized, designed and delivered. http://www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.1080/00131911.2013.846298 

The event is sponsored by Routledge (our publisher), with a cash prize presented to each winner, and lunch (at 1.00) for all who attend. The number of attendees is limited to 30.
