Mary Immaculate College is also hosting an International Research Methods Summer School (IRMSS) from 19-21 May and we have secured agreement with the IRMSS organising committee for TEPE 2017 participants to attend the keynote papers at no extra cost. Similarly the IRMSS attendees will be able to attend the TEPE keynotes. We think that this will allow for a really attractive aspect of the programme. The IRMSS keynote speaker on the Friday of the conference will be Vivian Gadsden, President of the American Educational Research Association (AERA).
