Conference Theme: "Learning Beyond Boundaries"Discovery is sparked through opportunities to examine contemporary knowledge and practices from differing perspectives, beyond well-defined areas of expertise. In educational research, the opportunity to explore current educational issues and challenges through a different lens can serve as a valuable catalyst for innovations in teaching and learning. Toward this goal, the International Academic Forum is proud to partner with Virginia Tech to examine the latest research and innovations in education, with a specific focus on perspectives that cross the traditional boundaries of disciplines, geographies, contexts, and cultures to inform the next generation of teaching and learning. Leveraging IAFOR’s globally-renowned offering of international, intercultural, and interdisciplinary scholarly exchanges, the “Learning Beyond Boundaries” conference organisers welcome original research and best practices related to the trends and issues in education that move beyond traditional paradigms and practices.
Held at Virginia Tech, Blacksburg, USA, The IAFOR Conference on Educational Research & Innovation (ERI) is a multidisciplinary conference organised by The International Academic Forum (IAFOR). Keynote, Featured and Spotlight Speakers will provide a variety of perspectives from different academic and professional backgrounds.
In conjunction with IAFOR's Global Partners, we look forward to welcoming you to Virginia Tech!
