WACE 2024 IRS Theme
This year’s conference theme is “Work-integrated learning and the sustainable knowledge society”.
Many changes in the contextual frameworks have reshaped the learning and educational landscapes of both individuals and institutions in society for centuries. This is driven by everyday people demanding access, equality, equity, inclusion, democracy, empowerment, leadership, courage, etc.
The education society should recognize the power everyday people have on the transformation of society, in particular education institutions. The education society is about the individual and her changing ways of acquiring knowledge and learning.
We welcome papers/presentations that develop and engage us in building a sustainable societal development in an inclusive manner. Learning theories and educational practices should meet different perspectives and groups to innovate together for an inclusive learning environments of the future. Our society requires that we collaborate across different research focuses and educational systems and learn from each other.
