Meeting Description:

The Asian Conference on Education is an interdisciplinary international conference that invites academics and independent scholars and researchers from around the world to meet and exchange the latest ideas and views in a forum encouraging respectful dialogue. Since its inception in 2009, ACE has welcomed over one thousand academics and practitioners to its annual Osaka event. The 2012 conference will afford the opportunity for renewing old acquaintances, making new contacts, and networking across higher education. Academics working in Japan and Asia will be encouraged to forge working relationships with each other, as well as with colleagues from Europe and the US, facilitating partnerships across borders.

ACE 2012 covers a broad range of topics, including language acquisition, applied linguistics, mulitliteracies and more. This year's conference theme is, Learning and Teaching through Transformative Spaces.

As previous Asian Conferences on Education have shown, education and lifelong learning can be seen as a solution to a host of local and global problems whilst globalized education systems are becoming increasing socially, ethnically and culturally diverse. Nevertheless, knowledge is often defined through discourses embedded in Western paradigms, whilst globalised education systems become increasingly determined by dominant knowledge economies.

Call for Papers:

The 4th Asian Conference on Education extends these discussions to consider the pedagogic challenges of developing transformative spaces for learning and teaching. The conference organizers encourage submissions that consider learning and teaching through one of the following sub-themes, although submission of other topics for consideration is also welcome:

Challenges and transformations in learning and teaching
Virtual spaces: digital technologies and communications
Connections and disconnections in learning and teaching
Learning and teaching in glocal spaces of transformation
