  • Conference Call
  • The Inter­na­tional Aca­d­e­mic Forum (IAFOR), in con­junc­tion with its global uni­ver­sity and insti­tu­tional part­ners, is proud to announce The IAFOR Inter­na­tional Con­fer­ence on Edu­ca­tion – Dubai 2017 (IICEDubai2017), part of the Dubai Con­fer­ence Series 2017.

    This inter­na­tional and inter­dis­ci­pli­nary con­fer­ence will act as a cen­tre for aca­d­e­mics, prac­ti­tion­ers and pro­fes­sion­als to dis­cuss new research in edu­ca­tion. IICEDubai2017 will cre­ate oppor­tu­ni­ties for the inter­na­tion­al­i­sa­tion of higher edu­ca­tion and shar­ing of exper­tise. We invite pro­fes­sion­als from all cor­ners of the world to develop poli­cies, exchange ideas, and pro­mote new part­ner­ships with organ­i­sa­tions and peers.

    The IAFOR Inter­na­tional Con­fer­ence on Edu­ca­tion – Dubai 2017 (IICEDubai2017) will be held along­side The IAFOR Inter­na­tional Con­fer­ence on Lan­guage Learn­ing – Dubai 2017 (IICLLDubai2017), The IAFOR Inter­na­tional Con­fer­ence on Social Sci­ences – Dubai 2017 (IICSSHDubai2017), and The IAFOR Inter­na­tional Con­fer­ence on Arts & Human­i­ties – Dubai 2017 (IICAHDubai2017) as part of the same event. Reg­is­tra­tion for any one of these con­fer­ences per­mits atten­dance in all four within the event.

    Con­fer­ence Theme: “Edu­cat­ing for Change”

    Why are we in teach­ing and learn­ing if not to be able to help enrich the lives of our stu­dents? Edu­ca­tional insti­tu­tions at all lev­els, and of all types, should con­tinue to strive for social change in today’s world. Beyond the seem­ing sim­plic­ity of our con­fer­ence theme, how­ever, is great scope for wide-​ranging responses to just how we go about edu­cat­ing for change by exam­in­ing the inher­ent chal­lenges and respon­si­bil­i­ties faced by edu­ca­tors the world over.

    Edu­ca­tion, too fre­quently, is the vic­tim of pol­i­tics, and worse, some­times ide­olo­gies. Politi­cians and bureau­crats devise and imple­ment poli­cies to effect change rang­ing from cur­ricu­lum struc­ture and goals to manip­u­lat­ing bud­gets on behalf of inter­est groups and their lob­by­ists. Ques­tions relat­ing to account­abil­ity, trans­par­ent gov­er­nance and com­mu­nity rela­tions are too fre­quently avoided.

    Within the class­room itself, bridg­ing the gap between pol­icy, the­ory, and prac­tice, whether tra­di­tional or vir­tual, teach­ers and pro­fes­sors de facto become, at vary­ing lev­els, agents for change. Beyond pro­vid­ing stu­dents with resources for study in given fields, they also sup­port them by often being seen as act­ing not merely as men­tors, but also as role models.

    These issues are part of the global trans­for­ma­tion affect­ing all human civ­i­liza­tion. How can we as teach­ers func­tion effec­tively in a very uncer­tain envi­ron­ment? How do we help to equip our stu­dents with the intel­lec­tual and exis­ten­tial tools they require? How do we nar­row the gap between the­ory and prac­tice? How do we make deci­sions about cur­ricu­lum and course con­text in the face of polit­i­cal pres­sure and social norms? What is the role of inter­dis­ci­pli­nary stud­ies in edu­cat­ing for change? And, at the macro level, how can we stim­u­late aware­ness of issues such as edu­ca­tion assist­ing the pro­mo­tion of social justice?

    This con­fer­ence, part of IAFOR’s global con­fer­ence series on edu­ca­tion, in its broad­est sense brings together teach­ers, researchers and dis­tin­guished pro­fes­sors from around the world to share their insights. The goal is to broaden aware­ness of dif­fer­ent con­texts in the pur­suit of syn­er­gies and solu­tions. We look for­ward to your active par­tic­i­pa­tion in this vital field of future-​oriented aca­d­e­mic activ­ity of The Inter­na­tional Aca­d­e­mic Forum.

    In con­junc­tion with our global part­ners we look for­ward to extend­ing a warm wel­come to you in 2017.
