The international and interdisciplinary conference “Discursive fits in the school environment” offers insights into the current interaction-oriented school research. Scholars working in language analysis and ethnography will present and discuss their findings. The goal of the conference is to show that, along with learning and teaching, the school space with its complex institutional and communicative conditions are critical to educational success. The purpose is to create a much deeper awareness about this approach in educational sciences than has been the previous case in exploring academic contexts.
