New Challenges and Opportunities in Education Research, Practice, and Policy [Online: Thurs, March 19, 2020, 9:30am-12:00pm]


The Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences Association (HSSA) invites visiting scholars, postdocs, visiting student researchers, and grad students to attend a Workshop on “New Challenges and Opportunities in Education Research, Practice, and Policy.” The goal of this workshop, which looks at higher education through challenges and opportunities in teaching, practice, and research is to provide a platform for discussing issues that higher education may face across various disciplines and in various contexts as well, as research and policy dynamics differ across countries.
