Faculty and alumni from Georgia Southern University attended and presented research at the 26th Annual European Early Childhood Education Research Association (EECERA) Conference that was held in Dublin, Ireland, from Aug. 31 to Sept. 3.

Presenting from the College of Education was Nancy McBride Arrington, Ph.D., associate professor in the Department of Teaching and Learning. Her co-presenters in the symposium “Praxeological Learning: Social Justice and Social Capital” included Vickie Lake, Ph.D., professor at the University of Oklahoma, and June O’Sullivan, director of the London Early Years Foundation in the United Kingdom.

In the session, Arrington shared research from the chapter she wrote in the recently-published book, Praxeological Learning: Service-Learning in Teacher Education by Christian Winterbottom and Vickie E. Lake.

Arrington’s chapter is titled “A Journey of Service-Learning: Three Different Professional Lenses.”

“It was awesome to be able to meet, collaborate and form new professional relationships with other early childhood educators from around the globe,” said Arrington. “One of the highlights for me personally was the lovely introduction to the culture of Irish music and dance provided at the conference’s opening ceremony.”

The conference, the largest childhood conference in Europe, consisted of 920 participants from six continents and 44 countries. It provides a framework that promotes networking for scholars, policy makers, researchers and practitioners.
