About the Conference:
After the first wave of the onset of globalization, stakeholders in the field of education felt that a transformation of existing educational systems was imminent. What followed that was an upsurge of new initiatives in educational systems across the world. However, since the initial euphoria there remain several challenges which have not yet found a suitable resolution. The aim of the conference is to provide an opportunity for academicians and professionals from various educational fields with cross-disciplinary interests to bridge the knowledge gap, promote research esteem and the evolution of pedagogy. We invite research papers that encompass conceptual analysis, design implementation and performance evaluation.
