Congress theme

Rethinking the futures of education in the Nordic countries

The conference welcomes contributions on a wide array of topics from the areas of education, teaching and learning with the objective to rethink the futures of educational sciences in the Nordic countries.

  • What are the dominant processes in education and learning that extend far into the future?
  • How do researchers, by their own scientific constructs and categorizations, shape and take responsibility for the understanding of education and learning in society?
  • What kind of global role the Nordic countries want to take in developing education in the future?
