JURE 2018



"Learning and instruction with an impact: scaling up the skill, will and thrill of learning"
The conference presentations, workshops and keynotes will showcase the newest findings about the cognitive, motivational and emotional aspects of learning and highlight the practical implications for practice and policy. We therefore want to welcome all contributions about learning and instruction in all possible contexts. We aim to provide participants with a broad range of research topics.


The JURE 2018 will take place at the University of Antwerp, Belgium.
Antwerp is a city in the Flanders region of Belgium and has one of the world’s major seaports and is an international center of the diamond industry. The university lies in the historical centre of the city and the highlights of Antwerp are thus in walking distance. The local organizing committee will organise social events during the evenings such as an Antwerp city Tour.
