Meeting Description:

The Department of Primary Education of the University of Ioannina organises an International Scientific Conference entitled “Education in the 21st century: Contemporary challenges and concerns''. The conference will be held on campus, on May 13-15, 2022.

Conference description
The modern political, social, humanitarian and cultural conditions formed at the beginning of the second decade of the 21st century outline a dynamically evolving and rapidly changing reality which is characterised not only by crises, threats, uncertainties and concerns, but also by opportunities, transformations and reversals. Education is a social phenomenon which interacts directly with social life; it is influenced by it and it may also influence it, play a leading role and meet modern challenges. It aims at:
• The exchange of experiences, fruitful reflection and creative dialogue between the members of the educational community as far as modern challenges are concerned.
• The publication/presentation of contemporary scientific assumptions and research data with the ultimate goal of co-formulating proposals for a modern educational reality.
• The presentation and promotion of innovative and alternative practices for all levels of education, in the fields of formal, informal and non-formal education as well as adult education.
• Teacher awareness, teacher role redefinition and teachers’ flexible adaptation to the modern challenges imposed by technology, globalisation and the constant changes of the social and cultural environment.
• The reassessment and record of educational reality towards a human-centered and sociocentric education.

The Conference will include: Oral and poster presentations, thematic symposia, experiential workshops, a special session entitled ''Students talk'' and Parallel educational activities/sessions.
