01. Introduction

The International Conference on Quality Education 2024 will be held from May 26th to 30th, 2024, in New Delhi, India, with the participation of global leaders in education, school owners, principals, educators, teachers, and special VIPs from different countries.

The conference will focus on “empowering 21st-century skills and spiritual well-being in children by enhancing the quality of education through STEAM education, employability, entrepreneurship, green education, and mindfulness.”

The themes of the conference will include:

  • Early childhood and school curriculum
  • Teaching-learning methods (pedagogical approaches)
  • Assessment and evaluation systems
  • Capacity development of teachers
  • Leadership and school management
  • Quality and standards of schools
  • Research and innovations
  • Corporate social responsibility (CSR)

These are essential areas for rapid upgrading to develop skills necessary for the 21st century and the spiritual well-being of children.

Individuals must face the volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity (VUCA) situation of the present global society. The conference will emphasize ways to develop skills essential to the 21st century and spiritual well-being to overcome the competitiveness of global society.

The conference is not a single event. It is a process of upgrading the quality of education. Live interviews, discussions, presentations, and an online lecture series on STEAM education, employability, entrepreneurship, greening education, and mindfulness will be conducted by delegates and selected resource persons from February through online platforms as pre-conference activities. The physical conference will be held from May 26th to 30th in New Delhi, India.”

At the physical conference, participants have the opportunity to receive awards for their excellence in performance during both the pre-conference and physical conference activities. Keynote speakers and paper presenters will receive awards based on their performance at the physical conference. “Excellence in Education” awards will be granted to educators for their lifetime contribution to the field of education, and schools will also be honored with “Excellence in Performance” awards for their best practices.

School visits, model classroom sessions, interactive sessions, and cultural programs have also been scheduled to add color to the conference.

The conference serves as an international platform for global leaders in education to showcase their talents, best practices, and international contributions to upgrading the quality of education. It provides a valuable opportunity for all participants to build international networks and collaborate to empower their schools and institutes with standards of quality education.

The conference is limited to 100 educators, and selections will be based on early registrations, qualifications, and experience.

The conference is organized by the International Association for Quality Education (IAFQE) and the South Asian International Association for Early Childhood Care and Development (SAIA4ECCD), with the hosting and academic partnership of Dr. Kalam International Foundation (DKIF), as well as many schools, institutes, and organizations around the world.


02. Problem Statement

  • The knowledge landscape in the world is changing rapidly. With various dynamic scientific and technological advances, children need multidisciplinary abilities to overcome the challenges of global society. However, the school system is facing challenges in fulfilling the needs of the global society effectively.
  • The gap between the current state of learning outcomes and what is required must be bridged through major reforms that bring the highest quality, equity, and integrity into the system, from early childhood care and education to higher education. Lack of collaboration and international forums among countries hinder major reforms.
  • The STEAM education approach in schools, aimed at developing children with 21st-century skills and preparing them for a rapidly changing world, is not effectively implemented in classrooms in many schools. Curriculums, teaching-learning processes, and assessment and evaluation methodologies in schools are not being rapidly upgraded to align with STEAM education approaches and fast-moving global needs.
  • Teacher empowerment and capacity-building mechanisms for educators and educational managers need to be upgraded to meet the needs of a dynamic society. There is a lack of motivation among educators for research and innovations to find solutions and new strategies to address existing issues and shortcomings in quality education.
  • Furthermore, there is a lack of international platforms for educators to share best practices, research findings, and innovative ideas to upgrade the quality of education. The dynamic service rendered by educators and the excellence of schools are not adequately evaluated on international platforms.”

Based on the performance and academic contributions for pre-conference activities and capacity development projects,  educators can fulfil the qualification to participate online in the conference and receive international awards for their academic contributions.

Opportunities for Delegates Participating as Experts:

Experts can engage in pre-conference activities according to their availability. They can share best practices, research findings, and competencies with stakeholders in the field of education worldwide. These activities, including panel discussions, interactive sessions, workshops, live interviews, and presentations related to early childhood and school curriculum, pedagogical approaches, assessment and evaluation systems, teacher capacity development, leadership and school management, quality standards, research, and innovations, as well as corporate social responsibility (CSR), will be broadcasted live on social media. Subsequently, all recorded content will be uploaded to YouTube and educational websites.

Moreover, the ‘International Quality Enhancement Project on SDG 4: Quality Education’ is being implemented as a pre-conference activity to train master trainers in STEAM Education and Child Protection. Participants can earn master trainer or master teacher certificates upon completion of the pre-conference activities. Educational experts registering for the conference are invited to deliver lectures in these training programs and will be honored with the ‘International Contribution for Quality Education’ award at the physical conference.

These opportunities enable experts to contribute to global education quality enhancement and provide them with international recognition and platform for professional growth.

Opportunities for Delegates Participating as Teachers and Young Educators:

Teachers and educators registering under category 01 can participate in lecture series and, upon successful completion of assessments, qualify as global master trainers or master teachers in relevant fields. Their performances will be showcased on YouTube and professional websites, providing them with career enhancement opportunities. Additionally, they can participate as moderators, interviewers, and session leaders in various conference activities, including panel discussions, live interviews, lectures, presentations, workshops, and interactive sessions. Participation in the Teachers Parliament allows them to hone their skills and personalities on an international platform.

The conference offers educators, both experienced and young, the chance to acquire and disseminate knowledge, emerge as global leaders in education, and be recognized for their academic leadership.”
