4th to 7th April 2013
From April 4-7, 2013, the College of the North Atlantic-Qatar will be hosting a major international conference in Doha, Qatar, entitled Global Innovators 2013: Leading and Learning in Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET).
The goal of our conference is to bring together delegates from around the world who are renowned for excellence in TVET practice and innovation. Participants will experience a novel and pragmatic suite of strategies, techniques, and tools delivered by the world's leading authorities and advocates for technical and vocational education. Distinguished international plenary speakers, high level roundtable discussions on international TVET frameworks, practical workshops, "real-world" skills developers, and a TVET Exhibition are only some of the offerings. Delegates will witness best practices at work in the field and classroom that positively transform the technical and vocational education learning experience, improve student engagement and support the development mandate inherent in global TVET education.
The conference will focus around 5 central themes:
- Leadership and Innovation in TVET
- Applied Research and TVET
- Teaching and Learning in TVET
- Student Counseling
- Supporting Learners in TVET
At this time, we invite TVET practitioners and researchers to submit abstracts aligned with the above conference themes. We particularly welcome papers that highlight proven and transferable successes in design, delivery, and pedagogy that can be shared with conference delegates for the improvement of global TVET programming and instruction.
