The theme for ALS2018 is “Work and Learning: Conquer New Frontiers!”
Worldwide, industry and economy are evolving rapidly as technological advances bring about new business and work trends. With the Education [Training and Adult Education] Industry Transformation Map launched in February 2018, this sector is ripe for pushing boundaries – to drive innovation, professionalise, deepen TAE skills and increase productivity. Now is the time for the TAE community to seize these windows of opportunities, carve out stronger career prospects and make a difference in the industry.
ALS2018 would like to invite submissions for practice and evidence-based papers, case studies, presentations, workshops or critiques addressing the conference theme and thrusts. Submissions may also be based on the three tracks of the conference below:
Standard papers are 30 minutes long, followed by 15 minutes for questions and discussion. Alternatively, you can call for a 90-min workshop-style session for your paper.
As ALS2018 is a practitioner-focused conference, the preferred structure of your paper is as follows:
- Issue related to the TAE sector, as well as the theme and/or relevant track
- Solution or intervention
- Findings, outcomes and/or critique
The first stage of the call for papers is the Online Submission of Abstract (no more than 300 words). If your abstract is accepted, you will then proceed to submit a full paper at a later date. All accepted papers must be delivered in English. Attendance of speakers is mandatory – we do not allow Skype or proxy presentations. Presenters for papers accepted for the symposium will be entitled to complimentary passes (subject to maximum of 2 if there is a co-presenter).
