Virtually all aspects of modern life - our job, our culture, our relationships with one another - are being transformed by the profound forces of globalization. Goods and people flow across national borders, data and information flash the world, at an ever accelerating rate. Not only has globalization become the central issue of our time, but it will define the world our children inherit. So those concerned about the future must ask, how our primary and secondary schools prepare today’s students to be successful students in the global society, yet preserve national identity. Today educators are more relevant to the project of education than ever before – to scaffold new ways of knowing, to help children and youth to reach higher and more complex levels of understanding, and to guide students to achieving greater appreciation for cultural complexity and diversity. The aim of the forum is to bring together researchers, practitioners, and policy-makers to discuss issues, tackle real challenges, develop professionally, share opinions, find solutions and explore opportunities that are relevant with the theme of the forum.
Conference topics will include, but are not limited to:
The conference welcomes proposals from experts in education, social sciences and public policy and government officials, scholars, academics, consultants, professional researchers, independent scholars, practitioners, post-docs and PhD/graduate students. We also welcome case studies, work-in-progress reports, or proposals in order to generate discussion and feedback in any of the conference topic areas.
PowerPoint Presentations: The conference room is equipped with a laptop, a digital projector and a projector screen. The laptop is set up for PowerPoint presentations. Presenters are asked to save their presentations in a compatible format. There is a 45-minute limit per presentation.
The deadline for submitting the proposals is April 1, 2019.
The deadline for registration as a participant is April 21, 2019.
