President of Ibn Zohr University Conference Chair

Dear Colleagues,

It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the 5th International Conference on Education Quality. I am very pleased that the theme of this year’s conference “Inclusion, Equality and Diversity in Education: Critical Perspectives, Global Challenges and Local Needs” promotes the UN Sustainable Development Goal 4 which aims to “ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all.” The theme of Inclusion is even more timely now given the current international pandemic context which has increased the educational divide between countries and between communities within the same country. However, it has equally provided us with an astonishing opportunity to rapidly adjust our practices, and develop innovative approaches to expanding accessibility and favorable learning environments to all students. We all agree to the importance of an inclusive and equitable education in fostering greater motivation to learn, inducing better achievements of learning goals, and more importantly ensuring a more equal society.

We, scholars, practitioners and policy makers, have engaged with student inclusion in different educational settings and from different perspective, each proposing valuable, and sometimes, unique insights into the processes and the impacts of our efforts and practices. Believing in how sharing experiences can help develop a better understanding of student diversity, this conference is intended to provide an opportunity for education leaders, researchers and practitioners to exchange visions and discuss the problems and challenges to inclusive education and to come out with scientific and practical recommendations that contribute to raising the quality of education for all. I am very proud that our annual conference has allowed for the different but essential voices of researchers and practitioners from over 24 countries each year to be present and heard. It has seen many institutions and individuals from around the world contribute in several ways to shape every aspect of the conference which has offered our delegates a first-class academic event and a memorable cultural experience through our program of extra-educational and cultural activities. On a final note, I would like to thank the members of the steering, scientific and organizing committees. Their efforts, expertise and spirit of cooperation made it possible to organize such a valuable event. I look forward to welcoming you at Ibn Zohr University, the largest HE provider in Morocco, and the city of Agadir, the national coast and cultural treasure.
