The Schools of Education Biennial Conference starts in..

About the Schools of Education Conference

The Schools of Education at the four physical campuses of The University of the West Indies take turns in hosting an academic conference biennially. Each conference focuses on a topic or issue that is educationally significant to the Caribbean. This year, the Cave Hill Campus will host the Schools of Education's first online conference under the theme Reimagining Education for Global Sustainability. Join the experience from June 15-16, 2022. 

Conference Rationale

Education is a powerful tool to foster change for the greater good. Change is inevitable but for it to be sustainable, people must flourish as the environment changes and play a critical role in that change.Reimagining education is imperative as sustainability demands a dynamic reconceptualisation of education to foster innovation, inclusion, and creativity in all learners by engendering a consciousness of a global community. This consciousness is rooted in the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, and in order for us to achieve these goals by 2030, quality education must be at the forefront.

Pre-Conference Workshops

This year the conference experience includes four pre-conference workshops hosted by expert facilitators. The workshops, scheduled for Tuesday, June 14, 2022, are intended to encourage intellectual and focused discussion on education awareness and understanding.
