***IICEHawaii2018 Conference Theme: “Surviving and Thriving: Education in Times of Change”
In 2017, IAFOR education conferences in Asia, Europe and North America have brought together delegates from around the world to consider the theme of “Educating for Change” from a variety of different perspectives and approaches, taking full advantage of the international make-up of the attendees and the huge diversity of experiences. A recurring theme throughout the conferences was the reference to the future, be it immediate or longer term, as being uncertain; the natural resilience and optimism was counterbalanced by both apprehension; with hope also came fear.
In this period of great global political and economic instability, rising inequality and social unrest, the role of education within society has never been more important, but never more vulnerable. This brings us to our conference theme for 2018, which references these inherent vulnerabilities in both educational systems and the individual students and teachers, as well as the necessary resilience needed to not only survive, but also thrive.
How do we teachers, administrators and policymakers adopt and adapt to change outside our control? How do we nurture and encourage positive change, through the excitement of the imagination, innovation and creativity? How can technologies be better used to help us teach, and to help students learn? How do we sustain and manage change? How can we react positively to negative change? How can we, our institutions and our students survive and thrive in these times of change?
**The Local Context: Hawaii and the Pacific
This unique international conference, organised in affiliation with IAFOR Global Partners, including the University of Hawai'i at Manoa, offers a unique location from which to consider a number of issues and trends in education, including distance, access and rural education, the frictions between the preservation and challenging of traditional and indigenous cultures, languages and wisdoms, and how alternative and marginalised groups are (re)valued. The population of the islands is multicultural and rich in the difference one would expect from its geographical location equidistant from Asia and the Americas. As part of the US system, the islands that make up Hawaii have a colonial past and present that informs questions of knowledge and identity, and invites discussions of social justice issues.
We hope and expect the 2018 conference in Hawaii will bring together educators from around the world to exchange ideas, research and practice from their own backgrounds and contexts, and to draw on and be inspired by the local and international body of delegates from an expected 40 different national backgrounds.
In conjunction with our Global Partners, including the University of Hawai'i at Manoa, we look forward to extending you a warm welcome in 2018.
