ECE 2014 - The European Conference on Education 2014 - Transforming and Changing Education: “Borderlands of Becoming and Belonging”

Date :  du 09-07-2014 au 13-07-2014

Lieu :  Brighton

Modalité :  présentiel

Organisation :  International Academic Forum (IAFOR)

Programme : 

In this conference – one of a series of three to be held in 2014 on transforming and changing education – participants are invited to explore the educational borderlands of becoming and belonging, including borderlands of geography, ‘difference’, culture, educational discourses, policies and practices, and more. This conference will explore the transformative effects of education through the borderlands of becoming and belonging, including:


      - how constructs of learner identities as ‘self’ and ‘other’ are negotiated through the borderlands of becoming and belonging
      - how these constructs shape senses of ‘learner’ and ‘non-learner’ for marginalised individuals

      Constructions of knowledge:

      - how understandings of ‘knowledge’ are constructed for learners and teachers through becoming and belonging
      - how hierarchies of ‘knowledge’ are determined and played out in educational borderlands

      Transformative pedagogies:

      - how transformative pedagogies can be developed and sustained within and through borderlands
      - how learners and teachers can use education to transform and change their understandings of and engagement with becoming and belonging

      The role of educational institutions:

      - how educational institutions endorse and/or challenge binaries belonging and unbelonging
      - how hidden differences and inequalities are played out in educational borderlands, and the pedagogical challenges this raises
