A Child's World Conference 2018 - New Shoes New Direction

International Conference: 11-13th July 2018.

Aberystwyth University, Penglais Campus, Aberystwyth, Wales, UK

“A Child's World - New Shoes New Direction” Conference has been devised to frame new concepts in collaborative practice in childhood studies against social, legislative and organisational changes within an international ‌strategic dimension.

‌In line with embedding Education for Sustainable Development and Global Citizenship (ESDGC), raising standards, promoting pupil participation and developing effective leadership and management, collaborative working is a vital tool in creating effective policy and shared practice.

From Schools, we would be interested to consider and include case studies of good practice relating to any of the above key themes in the conference.

Focused primarily at an educational research and professional audience, the findings will be relevant across a range of disciplines, including governmental policy formulation, social care and operational delivery of public services. The wide ranging scope of the conference will be highly applicable for national, regional and local government, education professionals and of direct interest to the general public.

It is intended that a series of papers of academic quality and scholarly importance will be published, providing the opportunity to identify and share best practice amongst subject professionals.
