AEA-Europe President's message

By Christina Wikström

AEA-Europe president

On behalf of the AEA-Europe council and the conference organizing committee

Dear AEA-Europe colleagues – present and future

The proverb “all things come to those who wait”, seems very appropriate when it comes to our wait to meet at the annual AEA-Europe conference in Dublin and Dun Laoghaire, Ireland.

We started planning this conference together with the local organisers at Trinity College and the Educational Research institute in Dublin several years ago. Then, the covid pandemic made us put everything on hold. The conference venue, the Royal Marine Hotel in Dun Laoghaire, Dublin, and our local conference agency Advantage have since then patiently waited for the pandemic to end, and for us to resume the planning. During this time, AEA-Europe has had two very successful digital conferences, in November 2020 and 2021. These conferences made it possible to share and discuss research and new developments in assessment, and we also learned that it is quite possible to meet for social gatherings and other activities in a digital format too. Still, it made us long for face-to-face meetings even more.  Those of you who attended the Irish pub evening could see the lively pub with dancers and music, and all the beautiful sights in Dublin through your computer screen and probably felt like we did – we want to be there, to experience Dublin and Dun Laoghaire, with our colleagues for real!

AEA-E Council members met up in Dublin in May to make preparations for this year’s conference which will be held there from 9-12 November.
This short video provides some highlights from their visit and a peek into the conference venue and surrounding area.

“New Visions for Assessment in Uncertain Times”

The past two years have represented an inflection point for many aspects of living as society recognised, struggled with, and gradually overcame the challenges brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic and its aftermath. From health to economics to leisure, to education and more, long-established ways of doing were altered in response to the threat, which at the time of writing, is receding, in Europe at least. In the aftershock of such seismic disruption, we can reflect on where to go next—whether to return to previous ways of work, living and leisure, or whether to change what we do. The United Nations (2020) noted that the COVID-19 pandemic led to the largest disruption of education ever, with schools in over 160 countries closed, affecting over 1 billion students. In response, the UN highlight a generational opportunity to reimagine education, in terms of reopening schools, prioritising education in funding decisions, adapting education to those in greatest need and accelerating change in teaching and learning. Assessment goes to the heart of teaching and learning and any meaningful change in practice requires consideration of best options in assessment. Education planners, test developers, teachers and others can usefully reflect on the possible direction of travel for assessment in the coming years. Read More

“We have had the crisis, so now is the time to build positively from it by coming together in Dublin and reflecting as a community on the next steps for educational assessment.”
