Educating for cultural sustainability: innovation for the future

The International Symposium for Innovation in Rural Education (ISFIRE) focuses on the obligation of the global education community to influence policy aimed at delivering equitable and socially just outcomes for rural students. ISFIRE offers an international forum for sharing research findings, innovative ideas and evaluated approaches linked to positive, practical action. In our current global context, ISFIRE 2020 offers an opportunity for the rural education community to come together to celebrate the importance of rural education, discuss our common challenges, explore how research informs our rural practice, and share solutions to raise the profile of the teaching profession, support student learning, and recognise school leaders.

  • The Pre-conference Emerging Rural Scholars Summit will be held on the 4th August, 2020.
  • This international symposium will include: keynote sessions, breakout parallel presentation sessions, and panel symposium sessions, with plenty of opportunities for discussion. You are encouraged to consider sharing with like-minded educators and researchers, and potential research collaborators your work to strengthen rural education.
  • The ISFIRE focus in 2020 is on Educating for Cultural Sustainability and how this strengthens and enhances rural education.

More information is available on the ISFIRE website.
