20 – 23 Jun 2017: STLHE @ Halifax, Canada

The upcoming STLHE 2017 annual conference will be held June 21-24, 2017 in Halifax, NS, Canada through a partnership of Saint Mary’s University, Dalhousie University, Mount Saint Vincent University, the Nova Scotia Community College, NSCAD University, l’Universite Sainte-Anne, and the University of King’s College.

The conference theme this year is “Gateways in Higher Education: Cultures, Transitions and Transformations.”

The metaphor of gateway is used widely to represent passages from one location to another, from one undertaking to another, from one way of life to another. In the realms of the theory and practice of technology, pedagogy, and assessment, it seems as though higher education is continually at the gateway, a liminal space, where possibility and advancement is available. What is the role of the post-secondary institutions, classrooms, teachers in supporting the students in their quest for higher learning? Understanding where we have come from and where we are now is key to understanding where we are going, and how we can develop and change over the next century to meet the needs of our changing student demographics.

Conference participants are invited to engage in questions such as these, and considerations of collective contributions to social, political, economic and human well-being in the unique context of Halifax—a place that combines real and metaphorical gateways with a 200-year history of providing opportunities for higher education.

Proposals can be submitted for half-day and full-day pre-conference workshops, and for interactive workshops, research presentations, Pecha Kucha sessions, and posters during the main conference. The proposal submission site will be live in the next couple of weeks as part of the main conference site.

Proposals will be due December 12, 2016.

When: 20-23 June 2017
Where: Halifax, NS, Canada

8 – 11 Jul 2017: EISTA @ Orlando, FL, USA

Main Purpose

Relationships between Education/Training and Information/Communication Technologies (ICT) are increasing acceleratingly, sometimes in unexpected ways, with original ideas and innovative tools, methodologies and synergies. Accordingly the main purpose of EISTA 2017 is to bring together researchers and practitioners from both areas, in order to support the bridging process between education/training and ICT communities.

Invitation to participate

In order to accomplish this purpose, ICT researchers are invited to present their research results. Practitioners and consultants are invited to present case study papers and innovative solutions. Corporations are invited to present education/training information systems and software based solutions. Teachers and university professors are invited to present case studies, information systems developed for specific purpose, and innovative ideas and designs. Educational scientists and technologists are invited to present research or position papers on the impact and the future possibilities of ICT in educational systems and training processes and methodologies. Managers of educational organizations and training consultants are invited to present problems that might be solved by means of ICT, or solutions that might be improved by different approaches and designs in ICT. All are invited to organize panels or invited sessions. Panel sessions with panelists coming from both: ICT researchers/practitioners and teachers/professors.

Where: Orlando, Florida, USA
When: 8 – 11 July 2017
Final date for paper submissions: 8 March 2017

22 – 26 Oct 2017: MSTE @ Kruger National Park, South Africa

Come to Kruger National Park in South Africa for an excellent MSTE conference!

The ISTE International Conference on Mathematics, Science and Technology Education (MSTE) provides a forum for practitioners from South Africa and other countries to interact and exchange ideas on issues relating to teaching and learning of mathematics, science and technology at all educational levels in South Africa and beyond.

Since the inception of the conference in 2010, it has been hosted by the Institute for Science and Technology Education (ISTE) at the University of South Africa, the largest university on the African continent. The conference provides an ambient environment for intellectual and academic interaction with colleagues from South Africa and overseas, and also the much-needed platform to showcase local research to an international audience.

The alluring atmosphere of the Kruger National Park and the magic of the African wildlife makes the experience an unforgettable one. The conference has hosted participants from all the continents of the world and has continued to reach out to a more diverse audience. Of the 200 abstracts received, about 100 are accepted for presentation, and about 50 papers are accepted after rigorous peer review for publication in the conference proceedings.

The conference continues to retain the theme “Towards Effective Teaching and Meaningful Learning in Mathematics, Science and Technology”, as this constitutes the core of the research focus at ISTE.

Where: Kruger National Park, South Africa
When: 22 – 26 October 2017
Abstracts due by: 5 May 2017
