The Emerging Field Group initiative is intended to support researchers active in innovative and exciting fields. An Emerging Field Group (EFG) consists of a small group of internationally active researchers working in the field of learning and instruction active within a new, emerging field of research. EARLI offers these researchers the opportunity to work together during a short but intense period of time to explore the possibilities in their shared field of interest.
EFGs are intended for exploratory, innovative and risk-taking approaches. Being part of an Emerging Field Group allows for its participants to focus on experimental and new fields of research, with an emphasis on exploration and process rather than output and product.
