Call for papers for ECE 2013 - The European Conference on Education, Last Date for submission of abstraction: March 1 2013

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 SpacesAs 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 increasingly socially, 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:- Challenges and transformations in learning and teaching- Virtual spaces: digital technologies and communications- Connections and disconnections in learning and teaching- Learning and teaching in glocal spaces of transformation- Space, Architecture and Learning- Global education and education for sustainable development- 'Englishes' and cultural communications- (Inter)cultural communications and understanding: challenging and preserving cultural differences- Leadership in learning and teaching- Bi-cultural, bilingual and bi-national educationWe hope to see you for our first conference in Europe in 2013!Professor Stuart D.
