Hello all,

In case it is of interest, please see below for details of the Young Social Learning Researchers network meeting, to be held in St Andrews this year.?



On the 21st & 22nd June this year, the Young Social Learning Researchers (YSLR) network<https://eur01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.yslr.co.uk%2F&data=02%7C01%7C%7C32eff4822e6142d0a8e008d56f0778df%7C84df9e7fe9f640afb435aaaaaaaaaaaa%7C1%7C0%7C636537000237427609&sdata=s7XTgAS8mrXZa27ZGhLacYltvznzWigat%2Fb4Ak9rBr4%3D&reserved=0> will be hosting its 2nd annual workshop! The workshop will be held at the historic University of St Andrews, located on the beautiful east coast of Scotland.

YSLR aims to bring together early career researchers from all corners of the broad and diverse field of Social Learning, to promote interdisciplinary collaborations and form an international community. The workshop will provide a platform for discussion on the state-of-art in the field, and will help participants develop interdisciplinary thinking and build a support network of fellow researchers. All participants are invited to present their work in the form of a poster, and you will also have the opportunity to network with colleagues and senior researchers from the University of St Andrews in an open-doors event. The workshop will conclude with a panel of senior researchers discussing the topic "Learning in the field - 20 years of Social Learning", followed by a Q&A session. Confirmed panel guests so far are: Prof Malinda Carpenter, Prof Kevin Laland, Dr Luke Rendell and (TBC) Dr Ellen Garland. More information and a workshop programme can be found on the workshop website<https://eur01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.yslr.co.uk%2Fevents%2Fsummer-workshop-2018%2F&data=02%7C01%7C%7C32eff4822e6142d0a8e008d56f0778df%7C84df9e7fe9f640afb435aaaaaaaaaaaa%7C1%7C0%7C636537000237427609&sdata=fM4SHMSICz8E%2FsDrpm7WbyGlIXmWZjaYVAKq50Fi4D0%3D&reserved=0> (further details will be posted there as they are confirmed).
