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. ACE 2011 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.

Conference Theme: Learning and Teaching in a
Globalised World

As the 2009 and 2010 Asian Conferences on
Education showed, education and lifelong learning
have been seen as a solution to a host of local
and global problems whilst globalized education
systems are becoming increasing socially,
ethnically and culturally diverse. The Third Asian
Conference on Education extends these discussions
to consider learning and teaching in a globalized
world. 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, resistances and negotiations in learning and teaching
- Community, culture and globalization
- Diversities, belonging and un/belonging
- Equity, social justice and social change
- Learning and teaching in a global knowledge economy
- Learning and teaching in glocal spaces

The deadline for abstracts/proposals is 1 July 2011.
