Education development can be understood as the development of practice and education systems, policy development, or analyzing how education operates at different levels, and how it can fulfill its societal functions.

Finding research-based solutions to local and global education challenges is a catchphrase for organizations working in global education development and even education researchers working in the global education space.

This symposium seeks to engage researchers and practitioners of education development to rethink the role of research in education development in practice.

The symposium provides an opportunity for participants to reflect and rethink their unique positions and to co-create an understanding of the field and network across organizations. We aim for a discussion including multiple perspectives from various localities and actors to support the co-creation of understanding of the ways in which we can contribute to making connections between educational research and global education development in practice.

Researchers are invited to submit abstracts of up to 150 words for the symposium by 30.9.2023 to 

Acceptance notification of abstract: 22.10.2023

Both in-person and online participation is available.
