Conference theme: Revitalization – Challenges and new perspectives in education

Arctic education conferences have been taking place in and hosted by different Arctic regions since the mid-1970s. The last conference was in Iqaluit, Nunavut in November 2012. The goal of the indigenous conferences is to share experiences from the indigenous world within the field of education from early childhood on to higher education.

The primary objective of the AIEC is to look at results achieved so far, recognize examples of good practice and identify problems and challenges and propose new perspectives in the area of indigenous Arctic education. The organizers are hoping to bring together new theoretical approaches and practical models of Arctic indigenous education with Arctic and world-wide perspectives.

The organizers invite presentations especially in the following areas:

  • Digital possibilities in indigenous education
  • New practices in Arctic indigenous education
  • Language revitalization
  • Cultural revitalizations

The deadline for submitting presentation proposals is November 15, 2015.
