Many academic staff and students will join the 60th anniversary conference of the Comparative & International Education Society (CIES) in Vancouver, Canada, 6-10 March 2016. This will be a special one for HKU, since Mark Bray is the President-Elect and an HKU team of students led by Nutsa Kobakhidze has a strong role in organizational matters.
The Comparative Education Research Centre (CERC) is organising a pre-meeting to provide some information on:
a) the CIES (history, mode of operation),
b) the conference (scale, organization),
c) Vancouver (including tourist opportunities),
d) each other (both students and academic staff).
In addition, the session will include some tips for successful presentations and networking.
Date: Monday 22 February
Place: Runme Shaw 202
We look forward to seeing you there.
