Call for Papers for ASEM Education Conference

Call for Papers for ASEM Education Conference

Call for Papers for the Conference '‘ASEM Education in a digital world: bridging the continents - connecting the people?'

The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) announces a call for papers for the conference ‘ASEM Education in a digital world: bridging the continents - connecting the people?’ in Cologne, Germany, 20th – 21st November 2018.


Background:
The ASEM Education Process constitutes one pillar under the Asia Europe Meeting (ASEM); an informal intergovernmental forum for dialogue and exchange. During their last conference in 2017, ASEM Ministers of Education adopted the Seoul Declaration which has declared people-to-people connectivity as a key element of cooperation for the next decade. In addition, ASEM societies are moving forward as Industry 4.0 implies new chances and challenges for education, skills and employability. Hence, the conference reflects the ASEM Education priorities in the digital era. It tackles questions on how ASEM countries can learn from one another and how key instruments can be used for realizing the common vision of tangible and practical cooperation in a digital world.

Therefore, we invite proposals for papers pertaining the following topics:

  1. Boosting exchange: balancing mobility between Asia and Europe through digital formats?
  2. ASEM’s diversity: fostering intercultural connectivity and understanding in a digital way
  3. Educational cooperation through virtual learning and blended formats: how to assure its quality?
  4. Industry 4.0: new challenges for skills and competences of young students and graduate

Selected candidates receive free accommodation for the duration of the conference and travel subsidies related to the seat of the home institution. Additionally, a 500€ lump sum is awarded for each selected paper. The papers will be presented during a workshop session at the conference and published in a conference publication.

We encourage young researchers (PhD students and postdocs) of all academic fields and with an interest in Asian-European cooperation in the field of education to send their abstract (min. 400/max. 800 words) and their CV to Martin Schifferings (This email address is being protected from spambots.
