Inaugural European Conference on Education (ECE) 2013

  • Conference Call
  • ECE is an international, intercultural and interdisciplinary event, and will give delegates the chance to listen to the latest news and research from scholars around the world, and great networking opportunities across higher education. Academics working throughout the world are encouraged to forge working relationships with each other, and facilitate partnerships across borders as part of the wider IAFOR community.

    Conference Theme: Learning and Teaching Through Transformative Spaces

    As previous IAFOR Conferences on Education have shown, education and lifelong learning can be seen as a solution to a host of local and global problems whilst globalized education systems are becoming increasinglysocially, ethnically and culturally diverse. Nevertheless, knowledge is often defined through discourses embedded in Western paradigms, as globalised education systems become increasingly determined by dominant knowledge economies.

    The Inaugural European Conference on Education extends these discussions to consider the pedagogic challenges of developing transformative spaces for learning and teaching. The conference organizers encourage submissions that consider learning and teaching through one of the following sub-themes, although submission of other topics for consideration is also welcome:
