Organizing committee JURE 2010
 JURE 2010 Theme  
 The theme for JURE 2010 is Connecting Diverse Perspectives on Learning and Instruction: A Conference of Synergy. Currently, there is a wide range of perspectives on learning and instruction within and across different specific domains (e.g. reading comprehension in foreign languages or multi-digit subtraction in mathematics). Moreover, the lifelong educational process is viewed from various focuses (e.g. collaborative learning or metacognitive regulation). Furthermore, many different quantitative and qualitative research methods coexist in the research area of education.
JURE 2010 aims to connect diverse perspectives in research on learning and instruction with the intention of exploring and discussing comprehensive and interdisciplinary ideas. By connecting these diverse perspectives, young researchers can broaden their view and learn from each other; this leads to synergetic incentives for future theoretical and empirical research.
 The Conference  
 JURE 2010 provides a wide range of opportunities for participants to engage in active exchange of ideas on the topic of learning and instruction. The Conference includes different presentation formats including keynotes, professional development courses, paper sessions, ICT demonstrations and interactive poster and round table sessions. With the aim of enhancing opportunities for in-depth discussion participants will review each others papers and posters within a peer-feedback process. Additionally, there is the chance to get feedback from experienced senior researchers on paper proposals. The aim of JURE is to contribute to the generation of an active and cohesive community of young researchers. Therefore, the conference also includes a lot of opportunities for informal chats during coffee breaks and lunch hours. And, last but not least, because we all appreciate some relaxation during all this intense scholarly activity, the programme includes social activities which will make the most of the summer in Frankfurt. The conference will focus on several business case studies, examples of these might be: the coca cola marketing strategy business study and the comcast customer service business miracle
 About JURE  
 The JURE “Junior Researchers of EARLI” is a network dedicated to the interests of all junior researchers of EARLI. The term “junior researchers” includes PhD-students and graduates who received their doctorate within the last two years. The primary aim of JURE is to represent and to support research students in matters of interest. Furthermore, learning and interaction among all junior researchers as well as among junior and senior researchers are significant goals for JURE. JURE organises meetings in which junior researchers can discuss their research topics with other juniors as well as with seniors, and where they can attend workshops on various topics, for instance academic writing and presentation skills. JURE provides a supportive environment in which juniors can socialize and participate in a scientific community.
