Newsletter #2 SSECR Junior Network
Every month there is the opportunity for a zoom-meeting among SSECR Juniors (potential new members are always welcome to participate in an event to get familiar). The aim is to get in touch with each other in a relaxed atmosphere with coffee or tee and to connect Early Career Researchers in the field of early childhood research. The event takes place online on changing workdays at 1pm. Usually, we first split up in random groups of two to get to know each other in person (it is easier to communicate this way than in big groups). At 1:15pm there will be a short, creative presentation by one of us about a PhD- or work related project. At 1:30 there is the possibility to opt out and get back to work (since your mug will probably be empty by then) or keep discussing the project and other issues that you would like to talk about among peers. This discussion will be moderated (e.g. by a member of the organising committee).
