The ICO International Fall School 2016

October 31-November 4, 2016
Bad Schussenried, Germany

ICO IFS2016 website:

We are pleased to invite you to come to the 12th ICO International Fall School (IFS) 2016 in Bad Schussenried (Germany). The ICO IFS2016 is a conference and an international educational event for all PhD-candidates who do research in the domain of learning, instruction and education. The primary aim of the ICO Fall School is to learn: learn from the keynote speeches, the various workshops by experts, and by presenting or discussing issues with regard to your own PhD-project. The second aim is to socialize and form a network in an international scientific community. The ICO IFS2016 is a valuable event for all PhD-candidates, independent of the stage of your research project.

All PhD-candidates who do research in the domains of learning, instruction, and/or education are welcome!
For ICO PhD-members, the International Fall School is a fixed part of their educational programme. Are you not an ICO-member, but are you interested in joining the ICO IFS2016? You are more than welcome to attend: we need your input to make it a truly international event.

During the IFS, active participation is expected and rewarded. You are expected to attend two workshops organized by international experts, and the keynote speeches by Prof. Dr. Frank Fischer and Prof. Dr. Tina Seidel, and you will give a presentation about your own research. As a participant, you are also expected to review the presentations of your peers. Participation will be rewarded with a certificate, worth 3 ECTS.

We are expecting PhD candidates from various European countries, and sometime further away. If you want to be part of this event, carefully read the information on the website and register!

We are looking forward to meeting you in Bad Schussenried!
