Meeting Description:

In an ever globalised world, education systems are being pressured to improve performance, to cater for students from diverse backgrounds and be able to teach as accessibly as possible. UK students are increasingly studying abroad and record numbers of international students are studying in the UK. Research into ‘international education’ has been conducted across a wide range of disciplines focusing on specific aspects, from teaching English to speakers of other languages (TESOL) to improving classroom teaching at UK institutions and making lessons as understandable and challenging for students as possible.

This strategic objectives of this conference is to strengthen links made by individuals; groups and research networks with other institutions and partners, as well as enhancing internal, cross-disciplinary collaborations. The realisation of these objectives is served by the constitution of an interdepartmental committee, the diverse themes in the call for papers and the invited speakers. Their diverse methodologies and perspectives on research will broaden the knowledge of delegates quantitatively and qualitatively whilst also fostering the cross-fertilisation of ideas between disciplines.
