Symposium: Educational Innovations in Countries around the World

spu

Seattle Pacific University, the School of Education and the Center for Global Curriculum Studies will host a three-day Symposium: Educational Innovations in Countries around the World, our 6th biennial edition of this conference held on the campus of SPU. The dates of the symposium are June 30-July 2, 2015. We expect participants from at least a dozen countries as well as from around the USA. The theme, as the title suggests, is on innovative educational methods, programs, curriculums, technologies, and assessment procedures. Educational innovations at any and all levels, including primary, secondary, and higher education as well as from agencies beyond the schools are included on the agenda. Proposals should be 500 words or less in length, and must be submitted no later than January 31, 2015. Topics can be addressed in the form of research findings, critical synthesis/analysis, or creative ideas, etc. We have made arrangements with the editors and publishers of the refereed journal, International Dialogues on Education: Past and Present, to publish conference papers in a thematic edition featuring the topic of educational innovations. Papers selected for inclusion will be published in both online and paper formats.

As has been the case in past symposiums, the two purposes of our gathering are 1) to share academic knowledge and insights and 2) to create a global community of scholars. To these ends full participation as presenter and “community” member are required. This means a commitment to the gathering for the full three days.

If you have questions or wish to know more about this opportunity, please contact Professor Arthur Ellis.
