Wondering if anyone out there is planning to attend this conference, or knows of people who are? I would like to organise a symposium group on a shared topic relating to education in our Australian context. Only just got information about this event so the time frame for submission is rather small! I have highlighted some of the potential topics/themes below. Clearly it could/should relate to sociology of Education, but I do imagine that as having expansive opportunities. Happy for anyone to either contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or respond to post on this site. Cheers!

|The Asia Pacific Educational Research Association International Conference 2014:Managing Global Changes and Education Reforms: Asia and Pacific Responses
19-21 Nov 2014
The Hong Kong Institute of Education
|Call for Papers (FINAL CALL):It is with great pleasure that we invite you to attend the Asia Pacific Educational Research Association (APERA) International Conference 2014 which will be held at the Hong Kong Institute of Education, Hong Kong from 19 to 21 November 2014.
The theme of the conference is ” Managing global changes and education reforms: Asia and Pacific Responses”, as we know globalisation has impacted almost every aspect of our lives and we, people who are concerned about education, are keen to know what this means to education. It is also our firm belief that research-based knowledge should underpin any and all initiatives in education, including planning, organising, implementing, and restructuring. Every country in the process of such reforms can learn valuable lessons from the experiences, knowledge, and insights gained from others. Discussion of the obstacles faced and how they may be addressed are also a rich knowledge resource. In this regard, the APERA International Conference 2014 aims to provide a platform for education practitioners, researchers and policy-makers throughout the Asia-Pacific region and beyond to share and discuss how to design and implement the necessary educational reforms that will prepare the next generation to meet the challenges in education posed by these changes.
You are cordially invited to take part in this exciting international event, and to share your innovations, experiences, cutting-edge findings, best practices and visions of education reforms.
Managing Global Changes and Education Reforms: Asia and Pacific ResponsesSub-themes:
- Format: The symposium is scheduled for 60 minutes and involves three to four individual presentations which are on a shared theme or topic.
