IAFOR is pleased to announce that the University of Hawaii at Manoa, USA (UH Manoa) has joined the IAFOR Global Partnership Programme through a Memorandum of Understanding signed by Professor Curtis P. Ho, Department Chair and Graduate Chair of the Learning Design and Technology Department at UH Manoa, and IAFOR President, Dr Joseph Haldane.
The University of Hawaii at Manoa, the flagship campus of the University of Hawaii system, founded in 1907, is a top public research university accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) and known for its excellence in academics, its diversity and its community involvement. Thanks to its location in Honolulu, the university is home to some of the world’s most unique research facilities, including the Hawaii Institute of Geophysics & Planetology, with laboratories in cosmochemistry, infrared spectroscopy, infrasound, paleomagnetics, and Raman spectroscopy. Research activity is “very high”, as classified by the Carnegie Foundation, and is pioneering in fields such as oceanography, astronomy, Pacific Islands and Asian area studies, linguistics, education, tropical agriculture, cancer, and genetics.
IAFOR held its extremely successful inaugural international conferences on Education, Language Learning and Technology in the Classroom at the Hawaii Convention Center in Honoulu in January of this year (January 8-11, 2016), at which Professor Curtis Ho was a Keynote Speaker. We are greatly looking forward to our return to Honolulu next year with an exciting new partnership.
