Two submission cycles

The ICED 2016 Conference provides two submission cycles. The reason for this is to have a reasonable time span between the Call for abstract and the final submission deadline, while at the same time satisfy those who need an early letter of acceptance.

Consideration for proposals will be based on the following criteria:

Does the paper address related to the conference theme/sub-themes?

Does the paper demonstrate an understanding of the issues and existing scholarship in the field?

Does the paper explain the theories and/or conceptual frameworks used, and why?

Does the paper explain the research design and/or methodological approach?

Does does your work contribute to understanding or practice in Educational Development?

What critical/reflective evaluation of your work do you offer?
