Comparing educational change in transforming societies
About the conference
The annual conference is our tradition of promoting scholarship in comparative education. We Hong Kong scholars have continued to shape this academic domain with professional discourses in English, Cantonese Chinese and Putonghua, languages with which our local experience and voices can be heard. We have also made this conference an international platform that scholars from neighbouring countries came to sharing their experiences. In the last few years, scholars from Korea, Thailand, Russia, Philippines India, Bangladesh, England, Australia, etc. attended our conferences. As globalization is becoming a prevailing phenomenon, comparing educational changes in different social context provides us vehicle for comparing notes on intellectual enquiry and issues in educational development.
Theme: Comparing educational change in transforming societies Languages: The conference languages include English, Chinese and Putonghua.

For presenters: please keep Prof. Xiao Jin informed as soon as possible if you require any IT and other arrangement by noon January 14, 2003!
A newly launched internationally refereed journal, Globalization, Society and Education (GSE), edited by Roger Dale and Susan Robertson, along with the CESHK’s Comparative Education Bulletin, are calling for paper contributions. Papers presented at the CESHK Annual Conference 2003 will be considered for publication.
To promote sharing our academic works, we plan to set up a Display Section for participants so that you can display your personal recent publications and your associated organization’s research projects. You can now prepare for that and bring them to the conference. You could bring a piece of poster about your organization, or bring publications for sale or for distribution. Please let Prof. Xiao Jin know that in detail (such as you need a table or a display stand for a poster, or bring up your books, etc) as early as possible.
