Track 3: Education, Training and Development

Track Coordinator: Dr. Kay Sanderson (Kay@mdx.ac) –For any additional information or questions regarding submissions to this track, please contact the track coordinator directly.

The education, training and development track of this conference aims to examine emerging paradigms and innovative practices, particularly those related to the development of new approaches to education and training. We are seeking papers that engage theoretically with the subject area and/or signify pioneering applications and developments. The objective is to present work that is transformative and which embraces serious intellectual discussion.
