CONFERENCE THEME: "Next: Educationeering the Future"

The pandemic has brought unprecedented changes in the world, particularly in the education sector. Notwithstanding its havoc on human lives, and the disruption to the economy, society, and education, COVID-19 hastened the rise in technology. Thus, bringing us to the new normal. Hence, educationeering equipped us to face the future in all aspects of 21st-century education. Educationeering is not a new term. It was defined by Dr. Pius Augustine Obanya, who brought education reform in Nigeria and West Africa. Educationeering is directing the triple academic functions of Research, Teaching and Responsive Social Engagement towards the education challenges of society.

In the new normal, the educators and the students are no longer confined in the classrooms, but in cyberspace where the interactions are limited to emojis, turned-off cameras, short messages, and pre-recorded lectures and activities. These hinder our emotional connection with each other since we cannot have physical contact and face to face communication. Educationeering is the appropriate way to address the challenges of the 21st century. Through research, we can identify the obstacles in teaching and online learning. Therefore, our findings and solutions must be responsive and engage society to address the challenges. Hence, we can develop appropriate teaching strategies and methods to the needs of the students. At the conference, the participants will have the opportunity to present their research on various fields of education and to exchange ideas, as well as to upgrade their knowledge on the recent practices on 21st-century teaching and learning. We welcome presentations on the fields of Education, Languages, Communication, Technology, Psychology and Management.
