Conference Dates: 3rd-4th October 2019
Preamble and Objective
The 21st Century which has been characterized by terrific technological advancement, has more than ever before required the ultimate aim of education to focus on empowering learners for both achievement of full potential and sustainable development. In its holistic agenda, education should seek to build the learners’ capacity to not only embrace technology as a significant tool for development, but also, to be innovative and ethical in identifying, managing and utilizing the available resources wisely and effectively. In addition, education should stimulate all learners equitably to enable them to exploit optimally the opportunities in their contexts. Consequently, the need to reflect on the contemporary trends with regard to processes of teaching and learning, the two most important activities that take place in any educational institution, cannot be over-emphasized. Hence, the main objective of this year’s conference is to provide a forum for scholars and researchers to share both empirical research and theoretical perspectives that could offer insights for the promotion of effective teaching and learning that is supportive of sustainable development for advancement of societies.
