5th international conference

Online - Friday 18 June 2021

The University of Worcester, in association with the Education Futures Collaboration and British Educational Research Association (BERA), invite you to participate in our 5th international conference entitled ‘Global Perspectives: Educational Leadership’.

This exciting online conference will focus on a number of important themes related to the impact of globalisation and internationalisation on sustainable education. The conference will consider innovative ideas to support new ways of thinking about educating children and leading learning in a world that has developed at a phenomenal rate. Through this conference, we want to challenge and share practice from around the world which considers inclusion, sharing knowledge across the globe, curriculum design and its impact on knowledge generation, globalising teacher education, developing evidence-informed practice and self-improving systems, diversity, global citizenship, and intercultural education with a key focus on leadership in education. This conference takes forward some of the issues explored during the 2019 conference entitled ‘Global Perspectives in Re-imagining Education’ where we continued to look at the challenge of education, the commercialisation of education and UNESCO Education 2030: A Framework for Action and Education in a Global Context. This year’s conference will build concrete solutions which support the UNESCO Education 2030 goals with the aim of allowing partnerships, networks and collaborations to be developed that will take forward some purposeful and real projects to support the development and vision of high-quality sustainable education for all across the world.

The conference is aimed at researchers, academics, consultants, practitioners, teachers, research students and professionals working in fields such as international, intercultural and comparative education, educational leadership, curriculum development, education policy and practice. It will be a wonderful opportunity to make connections with others in your field and to support strong research-informed practice.

We look forward to you joining in the conversation
