Call for Papers

Education reforms persist and undergo changes for a better development of education in future. There is, however, growing uncertainty and complexity that future education design should strategically take into account. In approaching the challenges, a newly-angled window is necessarily constructed toward foreseeable education. Foremost, the impact, transfer, and translation of education research into improved practice should be prioritized when designing future education. Accordingly, all researchers, practitioners, and policy-makers are together called for newly integrating education thinking more fully in theory, practice, and policy. On the one hand, education theory would not only provide education practitioners and policy-makers with an explanation and interpretation for an education phenomenon. But, it would also afford a prediction of future education thru its application to practice and policy. On the other hand, education researchers should acquire a better understanding of practice and policy when modelling new education theory. In sum, education theory, practice, and policy are complementary and interactive, not independent of each other.

We are pleased to announce to this year’s conference theme - Future Education Design: Creativity, Personality, and Safety. In the 2016 ICER, education scholars, practitioners, and policy-makers are encouraged to submit abstracts and posters in the following thematic areas of:

  ● Theory and Practices in Psychological Studies in Education

  ● Competence Development in a Lifelong Learning Society
  ● The nature of Educational Research in Higher education
  ● Future design for counseling
  ● A hybrid approach to future special education
  ● International Education Development and Cooperation
