CALL FOR ABSTRACTS
We are delighted to announce that the call for paper abstracts for the 5th International Conference on Quality in Education to be held in March 2022, at the Innovation City, Agadir, Morocco, is now open. We would like to encourage the education research community, and those professionals with extensive experiential knowledge, to submit abstracts for presentation at this event.
The theme of this fifth conference is Inclusion, Equality and Diversity – Critical Perspectives, Global Challenges and Local Needs. This theme will be critically explored through perspectives from different global settings and all levels of education, including early childhood, primary, secondary, higher education and vocational training. The event will offer a unique opportunity for internationally prominent keynote speakers and researchers across the globe, to gather and share perspectives on a variety of local issues and global challenges regarding education quality. ICEQ 2022 provides for researchers, practitioners and students to contribute scientifically and empirically to the enrichment and success of this event. The conference transcends politics as the ICEQ is an apolitical and ethical association.
