Conference theme: encompassing all voices
Finland is a frontrunner in inclusive education. Our conference theme 'Encompassing all voices' is perfectly encapsulated in the country's approach to education for all, including those who might otherwise be marginalised, providing equal access to high-quality learning, and seeking out and incorporating divergent viewpoints into policy and practice. These are the guideposts for working in international higher education todaySessions
Sessions can be attended by all participants and are designed to provide a quick, engaging forum for the exchange of ideas around a specific topic. The session Chair is tasked with briefly introducing the speakers and stimulating the discussion of different viewpoints among speakers and participants. Interactivity and creative session types are highly encouraged.
Session proposals are assessed based on the quality and relevance of the content, the proposed delivery, and their value within the context of the EAIE (eg diversity of subject matters, audience, Expert Community topics, conference theme, etc). One Chair is in charge of facilitating the session, and up to two speakers share their viewpoints and engage in a discussion. It is recommended that approximately one third of the session is dedicated to questions and answers, discussions or other formats that encourage audience participation.
Learning comes in different shapes and forms, so please take a moment to consider the best way to deliver your session content. The EAIE Conference Programme Committee invites all submitters to think creatively in order to deliver the most exciting, informative and engaging programme to date.
