1. Exploring and expanding the participative space of education
Description
: Education fundamentally involves participation. The form or mode of participation can greatly vary across contexts with significant implications for the way in which education is experienced and the further development of individuals and communities. 

2. Foreign language education: CLIL, young language learners, innovative language-related pedagogies, teacher development
Description: Foreign language education involves a wide range of innovative approaches, such as CLIL, bilingual education, heritage language education, multilingualism. Different approaches can have different implications for teachers and learners, as well as educational providers and stakeholders.

3. Teacher agency
Description: Teacher agency is concerned with the ways in which teachers seek to develop their work, their communities and/or themselves as teachers. Agency, however, is always in relation to environmental conditions creating both a tension and resource for development.

4. Dialogic approaches to education
Description: Dialogic approaches to education have received an increasing amount of attention in recent years from the critical pedagogy of Freire to the intrinsically relational pedagogy developed on the basis of Bakhtinian theories.

In this group students are encouraged to use the provided data. Most of the data (and supervisory skills) are in quantitative methods so quantitative methods are encouraged – except for the last theme (4), a part of the data are interviews and qualitative analysis is therefore also a possible approach.
