The individual, social cohesion, and democratic citizenship in the age of educational capitalism.
Join Régis Malet, from the Université de Bordeaux, for a brief presentation and discussion on this pressing topic for global education professionals.
This long running conference, organised by IAIE, the network for professional educators interested in diversity and equity issues in education, has a stated theme this year of "Another Brick in the Wall: Rethinking Education".
The event will focus on "sharing insights pertaining to the fields of Intercultural Education, Multicultural Education, Human Rights Education, Citizenship Education, and Education for Democracy and Global Education, when it comes to addressing present day diversity issues. The international conference will allow teachers, students and academics to share insights and experiences, and to be exposed to the state of the art research on issues relating to diversity and education. Participants will also be able to gain new knowledge and grow their skill set through training.
In sum, this conference will focus the challenges and opportunities relating to teaching and learning in diverse environments in the 21st century. The first days of the conference will focus on practical workshops, while the second part of the conference will have more of an academic focus with scholars presenting their research. Since the conference will take place in a bilingual, international school, the teachers and students of the school will play an active role throughout the conference."
