Call For Abstracts

As we prepare to enter the third decade of the 21st century, educators find themselves at critical crossroads in their attempts to deliver quality education. As an international society, we challenge ourselves to question how we will engage in the future of education in light of increased globalization, transformations, and advancing technologies. We invite multiple perspectives and voices in order to develop and promote global understandings and collegial relationships, support social justice and equity, and advance the profession.
