2017 Conference

Bienvenue! Welcome! 歡迎! Willkommen! Benvenuto!
환영! Seja bem-vindo(a)! Bienvenido!

We are pleased to announce the eighth annual Global Education Conference, a free online event bringing together educators and innovators from around the world. It will be held Monday, November 13 through Wednesday, November 16, 2017 (November 17th in some time zones). The entire virtual conference will be held online using the Blackboard Collaborate platform.

The Global Education Conference is a collaborative, inclusive, world-wide community initiative involving students, educators, and organizations at all levels. It is designed to significantly increase opportunities for building education-related connections around the globe while supporting cultural awareness and recognition of diversity. To attend this year's conference and to be kept informed of the latest conference news and updates, please join this network.

Present at the 2017 Global Education Conference
The conference seeks to present ideas, examples, and projects related to connecting educators and classrooms with a strong emphasis on promoting global awareness, fostering global competency, and inspiring action towards solving real–world problems. Through this event, attendees will challenge themselves and others to become more active citizens of the world. Participants are encouraged to learn, question, create, and engage in meaningful, authentic opportunities within a global context!

The call for proposals for the 2017 conference will open July 1st, 2017. Presenters can submit proposals for general sessions focused on five possible tracks:  Teachers, Students, Curriculum, Leadership, SDGs, Higher Education, and Exchange/Study Abroad Programs. 

Proposals should focus on ideas, projects, programs, and initiatives that promote global understanding and collaboration. Keep in mind that this conference is not focused on technology exclusively; proposals must focus on global collaboration and tie to the mission of the conference. Those who enter submissions that do not relate to the mission will be asked to revise. Companies must be sponsors of the conference to participate. 

The final deadline for submissions is November 1, 2017, and presenters will be notified of acceptance on a rolling basis starting in August 1, 2017.

Keynote presentations are by invitation only; suggestions can be submitted here.

Join Our International Advisory Board

Anyone can apply to be a member of the international advisory board. Advisory board members are recognized on the website and are asked to:

  • Participate actively in our online community
  • Promote both participation and attendance at the conference
  • Help us find additional partner organizations in their region(s)
  • Help support and potentially train presenters in their geographical region and local languages
  • If possible, help moderate sessions during the actual conference

As a conference that is focused on being inclusive, our desire is to have international attendees see this as a truly world-wide and not a North American-centric event and to see themselves as full participants and presenters, not just the audience.

To sign up for the advisory board, please make sure you have joined the conference network, and then join this group and read our advisory board information.


Become a Conference Outreach Partner
Organizations with significant reach are encouraged to become conference partners. Your work in this area must be non-commercial and primarily or substantively focused on globally connecting students or teachers, or other global competency and awareness education initiatives. Once approved, your organization will be listed with a link, logo, and a short description; and you will be provided with a "spotlight" speaker session in the conference and highlighted in our other global education events

Our goal for the conference is to have it continue to be a milestone event, bringing together organizations and individuals from all over the world. We recognize that much of the outreach for this conference will come from libraries, schools, or organizations who advertise the conference to their memberships, and we want to recognize your efforts.

There are no financial obligations for being a partner organization--all we ask is that you actively promote the conference to your membership and network, and encourage participation as well as presentations and submissions. To apply to be a conference partner organization, please make sure you have joined the conference network, and then submit a Partner Application.

Support Our Work Through Conference Sponsorship

There are opportunities for commercial sponsorship of the 2017 Global Education Conference, and both recognition and authentic appreciation for financial support will be given to those who choose to sponsor. Non-profits who see value in our work and want to support this endeavor are also encouraged to consider sponsorship. Sponsorship levels and benefits can be discussed with Steve Hargadon directly at steve@hargadon.com or 916-283-7901.

We are looking forward to the seventh year of this terrific event, and to your participation! For further updates, please join our network at http://globaleducationconference.com and follow us on Twitter (@GlobalEdCon) and using the hashtag #globaled17.

Thank you for your interest!
