***ACE2017 Conference Theme: "Educating for Change"

Why are we in teaching and learning if not to be able to help enrich the lives of our students? Educational institutions at all levels, and of all types, should continue to strive for social change in today's world. Beyond the apparent simplicity of our conference theme, however, there is great scope for wide-ranging responses to the question of just how we go about educating for change, by examining the inherent challenges and responsibilities faced by educators the world over.

Education, too frequently, is the victim of politics, and, worse, sometimes ideologies. Politicians and bureaucrats devise and implement policies to effect change that range from curriculum structure and goals to manipulating budgets on behalf of interest groups and their lobbyists. Questions relating to accountability, transparent governance and community relations are too frequently avoided.

Within the classroom itself, bridging the gap between policy, theory and practice, whether traditional or virtual, teachers and professors de facto become, at varying levels, agents for change. Beyond providing students with resources for study in given fields, they also support them by often being seen as acting not merely as mentors, but also as role models.

These issues are part of the global transformation affecting all human civilisation. How can we as teachers function effectively in a very uncertain environment? How do we help to equip our students with the intellectual and existential tools they require? How do we narrow the gap between theory and practice? How do we make decisions about curriculum and course context in the face of political pressure and social norms? What is the role of interdisciplinary studies in educating for change? And, at the macro level, how can we stimulate awareness of issues such as education assisting the promotion of social justice?

This conference, part of IAFOR's global conference series on education, in its broadest sense brings together teachers, researchers and distinguished professors from around the world to share their insights. The goal is to broaden awareness of different contexts in the pursuit of synergies and solutions. We look forward to your active participation in this vital field of future-oriented academic activity of The International Academic Forum.

In conjunction with our global partners, we look forward to extending you a warm welcome in 2017.

– The ACE2017 Organising Committee (iafor.org/ACE2017-committee)



Featured Presentation: Change in Education: By Whom? For Whom?
Dr Yvonne Masters, University of New England, Australia

Heraclitus has been credited with saying that "change is the only constant in life". In education, change is definitely constant, but this has many different meanings. Both in the classroom and in the corridors of policy, change is continuous, often under the banner of "education FOR change". However, the deeper questions revolve around for whom the change is meant and by whom the change is to be implemented. This is particularly the case in the arena of teacher education. Taking examples from the current Australian context, this presentation explores changes in teacher education policy in terms of both teacher candidate selection and programme accreditation. It will be demonstrated how the selection changes being implemented are exclusionary with the potential to perpetuate social injustices. There will also be exploration of the narrowing of curriculum offerings through the new accreditation process, resulting in a more mechanistic education for children in schools. The presentation will conclude by comparing the context in Australia with other international contexts and raising the question as to how best to educate our future teachers for the changes they will be asked to implement in their classrooms.

Further programming for ACE2017 will be announced in the coming weeks and months.

International Conference on Teacher Education and Professional Development

International Conference on Teacher Education and Professional Development
21st to 22nd October 2017
Yogyakarta, Indonesia

Universitas Negeri Yogyakarta (http://uny.ac.id), a state university in Yogyakarta, Indonesia, organizes annual conference namely International Conference on Teacher Education and Professional Development. Yogyakarta is a cultural center in Java, Indonesia and a vibrant educational city. This conference will gather world wide researchers on social science field, especially education. Supported by the submission system and professional reviewer team, papers submitted in the conference will have great contribution to the field.

The main theme is "Character Education for 21st Century Global Citizens."

Character education is defined as planned, systematic, and comprehensive efforts to develop students' good character.


1. Values for 21stcentury global citizens
This sub-theme identifies global, regional, national, and local values to be acquired by teachers and students to live in the world with no boundaries almost in every aspect of life. The identified values will be the ones to be educated to students.

2. Preparing teachers for integrative values education
With the increasing importance of character education, teacher training must prepare teachers to competently instill values integrated in the subject matter delivery and assessment of student achievement. This sub-theme gives opportunity to researchers and practitioners to share their findings and best practices in planning, implementing, and evaluating teacher education for integrative character education.

3. Teacher professional development for enhancing character education
The theory and practice of integrative character education develop from time to time. Practicing teachers must upgrade their competence continuously following the development through continuous professional development. This sub-theme deals with how professional development for enhanced character education is effectively done.

4. Curriculum/syllabus/lesson plan/learning materials development for integrated values education
Character education in this conference is defined as planned, systematic, and comprehensive efforts to develop good character. This sub-theme concerns how the curriculum, syllabus, lesson plan, and learning materials are developed to ensure that integrative values education is well planned in every level of learning planning.

5. Developing learning activities/tasks/strategies for character education
Student's character development is effectively promoted through the learning activities. However, many teachers have limited knowledge of learning activities/tasks/strategies for character education. For that reason, it is essential that researchers and practitioners be given opportunity to share their research findings and best practices in the area.

6. Assessing student's character development (values acquisition assessment)
One of the problems that teachers face in character education is how to assess the students' values acquisition. This sub-theme discusses various practical techniques and instruments to assess the students' character development as well as to interpret and report the assessment results.

7. Creating/managing conducive school culture to character education
Values acquisition is not only facilitated through the teaching learning process in the classroom, but also promoted through the habit/culture/environment/management of the school as a whole. This sub-theme offers opportunity to researchers, school principals, supervisors, decision makers, and teachers to share their research findings and best practices in managing the school for effective character education.

8. Parents and public involvement in character education
Character education does not only take place at school, but also at home and the community. In addition, values education is not only the responsibility of the school. Parents and the public must actively involve themselves in the effort in many ways. This sub-theme provides a room for all parties to share their research findings, best practices, and practical ideas in involving parents and public (i.e.: mass media, community, social organizations, industry, political parties) in character education.

All accepted papers are reviewed by International Scientific board and selected papers will be included in the InCoTEPD proceeding by our publisher indexed on Scopus and/or Thomson Reuter.
