Panelists, Participants Sought for U.S.–China Education Conference
Are you an expert who can speak on teacher quality issues? Are you interested in discussing education research, policy, and innovation for the knowledge-based economy with colleagues from China and the United States?
The College of Education and Behavioral Sciences at the University of Northern Colorado (UNC) seeks prospective teacher-quality panelists and general participants for an international conference in Beijing this June. There is no registration charge, but space is limited.
The UNC College of Education and Behavioral Sciences is collaborating with the National Institute for Education Sciences (NIES) in China to organize the U.S.–China Education Conference and Think Tank on Education, to be held June 6-9 in conjunction with the Seventh China-U.S. High-Level Consultation on People-to-People Exchange. The event will be held at the China National Convention Center in Beijing.
The conference aims to promote educational advancement in China and the United States by providing a platform for exchange by educational researchers and policy makers from both countries. It has four specific themes: 21st century skills and innovation; youth employment and entrepreneurship education; regional educational reform and innovation; and teacher quality and education quality.
UNC is responsible for organizing panelists for the last theme and is seeking four panelists to provide perspective to the discussion.
