Educational Innovations in Countries around the World

International Symposium
June 25-27, 2019 at Seattle Pacific University, Seattle (USA)

Join World-Changing Thinkers and Innovators in Education

We would like to invite you to participate in this academic gathering of scholars from around the world. We will meet in the beautiful Pacific Rim city of Seattle, with an afternoon spent on Whidbey Island, off the coast of Washington State. The Symposium is supported by SPU, the School of Education, the Center for Global Curriculum Studies, and grants from the Henry Jackson School of International Studies of the University of Washington.

The theme of Educational Innovation resonates increasingly well in our rapidly changing technological age. Traditional assumptions are brought into question, and in some case swept aside. Change affects all levels from pre-school and kindergarten through post-graduate university. Age-old models of teaching and learning are challenged. Access to information moves quickly from centrally-located fixed sources we have taken for granted, including schools, libraries, and universities to web-based sources bound neither by time nor distance. The print medium, five centuries old, gives way to digital sources. Journals change from print to electronic form. These are exciting times to be involved in education. But some things do not change, for example, the need to come together as colleagues to share insights and vision. One of the great collateral outcomes of our many prior symposiums is the creation of lasting friendships among scholars across the globe. As we meet together and form a community over three days’ time, we build a lasting social/moral fabric of dedicated friends who share a common interest in the betterment of educational opportunity for the coming generations.

We welcome papers from all facets of educational innovation, including the following: higher education; public and private school education; digital education; distance learning; curriculum studies; teaching and learning; assessment and testing; educational administration; educational psychology, philosophy, anthropology, and sociology; special education; counselor education; comparative education; global education; economics of education; second language learning; history of education; student mobility; ethics and moral education; future studies; and more…
