International Conference on Education and Learning

The International Community of Education and Learning aims to develop innovative spaces for the creation and exchange of knowledge in a wide range of disciplines related – to a greater or lesser extent – with education, teaching and learning in society. The community interacts by attending annual conferences held in different parts of the world, as well as through a ‘family’ of indexed and arbitrated journals, and a collection of books on academic reflection.

Members of this knowledge community include academics, researchers, professors, instructors, teachers, pedagogues, policy makers, university authorities, psychologists, philosophers, civil servants, educational managers. Also included are consultants, technologists and educational software companies, as well as students and PhD students

The International Conference on Education and Learning has become a forum for discussion that explores how scientific, technological, political, cultural, economic and social changes have a decisive influence – increasingly more so as the years go by – on education and learning for both new generations and adults. The conference includes prominent speakers, and some of the most prestigious thinkers in the world, as well as presentations, workshops and seminars given by professors, researchers and professionals from both the public and private sectors. The official languages are English, Spanish, and Portuguese.
