 Call for Abstracts : 1st Annual Education Association of South Africa (EASA) Conference

The University of Limpopo School of Education in partnership with Education Association of South Africa (EASA) will host 1st Annual EASA Conference themed “The paradoxes of educational transformation in South Africa: Discourses and trends”. The conference will take place from 13 to 16 January 2019. Staff members, postgraduate and undergraduate students in education or related fields are encouraged to submit their abstracts.  
Down the years, education has always been in a state of flux. What are regarded as new innovations soon become obsolete and need to be changed. Recent debates on the transformation of curriculum demonstrate this axiom. Since the movement #FeesMustFall, the calls for the decolonisation of the curriculum have become more vigorous. Therefore, this conference aims to encouraging scholars to debate about the nature and the scope of educational transformation.
