Conference Theme

The conference theme this year is ‘Education for sustainable development and social wellbeing’. The conference theme this year seeks to explore the role of education for sustainable development and social wellbeing. At the global level, it responds to the UN-led Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), in which social wellbeing is given a key position. At the national level, it considers the coronavirus outbreak in China as a microcosm invoking a range of social issues, concerns and actions. We, therefore, welcome participants to reflect on their thoughts on the role of education within broader social and environmental concerns, to show examples of local activities that promote sustainable thinking and practice, and to share their visions on future research and practice for building an inclusive and resilient society.

Based on the previous six conferences since 2013, CERA members have developed the following special interest groups within Chinese educational research:

· Chinese language education

· English language education

· Higher education

· Early childhood education

· Family education

· Education technology and media

· Education and (economic, social and cultural) development

· Inclusive and special needs education

· School curriculum and subject development

· Teacher education and development

· Chinese students in the UK

· Educational leadership and management

· Art and music education

· Vocational education

· Continuing and lifelong education

· Educational policy

· Private education

· Character and moral education

· Outdoor education

· Science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education

These and others will form the sub-themes for our conference. We welcome proposals from CERA members and conference attendees for ideas about new themes to enrich the range of discussion at the conference.

About CERA

The Chinese Education Research Association in the UK (CERA-UK) embraces the widest definition of ‘Chinese’ so we can welcome friends from the Chinese diaspora around the world and also academics with a strong interest in developments in educational research focusing upon China. It became evident that there was a wide range of research taking place which the Chinese academic community based in Britain and across Europe that we were sometimes unaware of. A particular example of this has been the inclusion of research relating to language.

CERA is offering an expanded annual conference as well as a series of academic workshops, social events and lecture information for our members. We are a network whose aim is to coordinate post-graduate students, academic researchers and scholars who share an interest in China and Chinese related educational developments and issues. We exist in order to offer a platform to enable your voices to be heard by others in the educational and policy-making field. We welcome members from wherever you are located as well as friends who share our interests and commitments to furthering understanding of Chinese and China-related educational issues.
