Call for proposals

AIE conferences, held in alternate years, aim to bring together those involved in the promotion of intercultural understanding and international education, including researchers and practitioners at every level of education throughout the world. The 2016 conference programme will include keynote presentations by distinguished speakers, and a series of related strand sessions based on small group presentations and discussion around a range of strand topics. There will also be opportunity for those with common interests in the differing age-related phases of education to get together to share experiences, as well as a host of other informal opportunities for the exchange of views and experience around the overall conference theme of Engaging with Difference. All participants will be members of one of the strand groups, and those who wish to make a presentation within one of the groups should submit a proposal via the AIE website, as outlined below.

To submit a proposal, please upload to the conference website an abstract of the proposed presentation (not exceeding 300 words), together with the name(s) and full contact details (telephone number and e-mail) of conference presenter(s). All proposals will be peer reviewed.

Each presentation will last for a maximum of 20 minutes, followed by 25 minutes of discussion. Presentations must relate to the overall conference theme (Engaging with Difference) and may be based on completed research or other projects or on ideas for innovative schemes or topics for future exploration.

We welcome proposals in the following areas, from which the strand themes will be devised:

- Curriculum implications for engaging with difference

- Leadership and Management of engaging with difference

- Global Citizenship

- Professional development of teachers for engaging with difference

- Recognizing different forms of success

- Schools and their wider communities: engaging with difference

- Engaging with difference in teaching and learning
