April 11, 2024 | CIDER IV Kick-off Workshop 2024 in Frankfurt

The fourth cohort started with the CIDER IV Kick-off Workshop 2024 at the DIPF | Leibniz Institute for Research and Information in Education in Frankfurt (April 08-10, 2024). The workshop’s main goal was to introduce the new Fellows to each other. The program offered plenty of opportunities to get to know each other, with formats like poster presentations, an open space focusing on shared research interests as well as different social events. Furthermore, the Fellows got an introduction to the three central research topics by interdisciplinary talks from different disciplines, which were given by CIDER alumni from the last cohort and CIDER seniors. Jannis Burkhard and Lisa Ziernwald were elected as CIDER IV cohort representatives. Have a look at the detailed program here.

November 28, 2023 | CIDER III Final Conference in Berlin

CIDER Fellows from all three cohorts gathered for a great CIDER reunion at the WZB in Berlin from November 20-22, 2023. The program commenced with a collective visit to the German Resistance Memorial (Gedenkstätte Deutscher Widerstand) and a fireside chat on perspectives in educational research with CIDER Fellows and Seniors.

On Tuesday and Wednesday, all 16 Micro Groups of CIDER III presented their research topics and results. Furthermore, the Fellows reflected on the benefits and obstacles of interdisciplinarity in a World Cafe, listened to two captivating keynotes by Richard Münch and Valentina di Stasio, and discussed ways to stay connected as CIDER alumni. In addition, there was ample time for informal exchange during a walk through Tiergarten and the conference dinner on Tuesday.
