The Asian Conference on Education and International Development 2018

Dear Colleague,

The final submission deadline is approaching. We invite your participation in The Asian Conference on Education & International Development 2018 (ACEID2018), so submit your abstract by January 10, 2018.

Every year, we strive to explore the nexus between educational policies, practices and theories, along with development of the global world towards sustainability and positive change. This year's conference theme is "Surviving and Thriving: Education in Times of Change". Whether we are looking at how education has changed or will change, or how education has changed or will change us, we understand that change affects us all. As administrators, teacher educators, teachers, educational policy leaders, students or community members, we all come face-to-face with change, often on a daily basis.

We know that change is not only about test scores or proficiency going up; it is also about lasting change in one's life and life choices, and, looking beyond ourselves as individuals, in the larger society that we live in. Thus, we invite you to contribute to this 2018 conference on educating for positive change in our lives and in the world at large. At the conference, we hope to examine change in ways that are important to us as individuals, as well as the challenges, complexities and constraints of educating for change. Our goal is to offer wide-ranging conversations from a multitude of disciplines, including all areas of education, community development, the arts and business.

Please join us to help unpack how to educate for change, to share your research, to contribute to international development, and to engage in important conversations around social sustainability in an ever-changing world.

We hope to see you in Kobe, March 26–28, 2018.

Our best regards,

– The ACEID2018 Organising Committee
