IAFOR’s education conferences are held across three continents, attracting more than 2,000 delegates a year from more than 100 countries. Education as an (inter)discipline drives the purpose of the forum by bringing alive the notions of the international, the intercultural and the interdisciplinary through scholarly, political, and personal encounters with some of the most important academics and practitioners working in the field, as well as the thought leaders of tomorrow.
Our education conferences are organised in partnership with some of the world’s most prestigious universities and schools of education, including Birkbeck, University of London, Waseda University, Moscow State University, University of Sussex, University of Indonesia and Virginia Tech.
Our conferences have included featured addresses by teachers and academics, university presidents, government ministers, journalists, and policy makers, as well as academic fora around some of the pressing issues in the fields of education.
We invite you to use the IAFOR platform to share and test your ideas with scholars around the world, and to join us very soon at one of our education conferences.
