2020 Annual Conference

‘Education Otherwise: historical perspectives’

Virtual conference: 23rd -27th November 2020

We are living through a historic moment in education as schools, colleges and universities have been disrupted internationally owing to the Covid-19 pandemic. Educationalists and students alike have faced unique challenges in continuing educational activities, and much has been revealed of the stark inequalities across sectors in the learning opportunities available to learners. For the majority, education has shifted into domestic context, with all the concomitant challenges of doing so. What is education and learning? How does education happen in extremis? Does learning only = education and if not, what are its drivers, facilitators and inhibitors? What is learning beyond education? What can the present crisis learn from education’s past, and what might the future learn from the present?

The CFP has now closed. Successful applicants will be notified of the outcome of their submitted proposal by mid-October.
