Dear IAACS members,

As an IAACS executive committee, we thought it a good idea to inform members (between triennial conferences) as to developments in the field that are occurring in different regions of the world. One way of doing so is through producing newsletters and we are pleased to share Newsletter 2021 with you. 

I would like to thank the IAACS Publications Committee for producing Newsletter 2021, and in particular to Shan Simmonds for coordinating this effect. A big thank you to those who have contributed to the newsletter,

We look forward to seeing you in Braga next year.

Yours in education,

Lesley LL Le Grange,

IAACS President

Letter from IAACS President

The 7th Triennial Conference of IAACS

Dear IAACS members,

On behalf of the IAACS executive committee I am pleased to announce that the 7th triennial conference of IAACS will take place from 20-22 June 2022 in Braga, Portugal.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we had to postpone the 2021 conference until 2022. Given the roll-out of vaccines across the globe we are optimistic about hosting an in-person conference. However, alternative options will be explored if conditions do not permit an in-person conference.

I would like to thank the organisers of the conference for all their efforts thus far, and in particular to Professor José Pacheco for his leadership in organising the conference.

Please forward the conference flyer to your respective networks and we look forward to seeing you in Braga next year.

Yours in education,

Lesley LL Le Grange,

IAACS President

Letter to Members (2019)

HAPPY NEW 2020!

Dear Colleagues,

At this season, last year, we were together in Australia for our wonderful Conference presided by our estimate colleague Bill Green. As stated in the report prepared by the organizing committee and posted on our page, the conference was a success, with 242 participants from 32 countries. For all of us who were there, lots of memories of complicated conversations around curriculum studies and many other subjects. Since then, throughout this year of 2019, there have been many national meetings we have attended, including those held by IAACS-linked national and transnational (such as the European) organizations. On all these occasions, we celebrate the fact that we have associated ourselves, at the turn of the century, to support a worldwide Continue reading
