Symposium: Educational Innovations and Reform in Countries around the World

June 29-30 and July 1, 2011 — Seattle Pacific University — Seattle, Washington

This three-day symposium will feature 25-30 presenters from around the world who will speak to innovations and reforms in their respective countries.  Using a roundtable format, the symposium allows presenters 30 minutes to present their papers, followed by dialogue and Q & A session. Certain papers will qualify for publication in an edited edition of the symposium proceedings.

We invite you to present a paper on certain aspects of educational innovation or reform that is taking place or planned in your country and/or at your institution. The deadline for submitting a paper proposal is January 31,  2011. Proposals should be limited to one or two paragraphs that explain the gist of the proposed paper.  Formal papers are due May 15, 2011. Papers should be no longer than 12 double-spaced pages with bibliography.

Registration cost for the symposium is $435, which also includes most meals. Nearby hotels are available at reduced rates, and registrants will be given assistance in making their reservations.

Summer is a splendid time of year to visit Seattle. Included in registration costs is a cultural program featuring Native American traditional ceremonies and foods.

    A point of clarification, is the symposium is about ed tech in particular or innovation in education more generally? It seems to be education more generally but wanted to check. Thanks.

      Thanks for your comment. The symposium will address educational innovation in general. There will be papers on educational technology innovation but it’s not the primary focus of the symposium. We would love to have you join us.
