Please send proposals to Yael Sharan


In this strand participants will experience a variety of methods and procedures that facilitate learning in small groups, as opposed to the traditional transmission model that is still quite pervasive.

The workshops will demonstrate ways learners of all ages can involve ideas, feelings, experiences, and cultural backgrounds in the learning process.

Participants will be exposed to CL methods and strategies designed to maximize learners’ participation and contributions. The variety of workshops is based on the wealth of research and practice in the field that have proven CL’s benefit to all learners, in all areas of learning.

The strand is co-chaired by Jill Clark (IASCE Board member), Yael Sharan, (IASCE Board member and IAIE member), and Ferenc Arato (IAIE and IASCE member).


For each of these strands, we are accepting proposals in the following categories:

  • Papers on concluded or ongoing research in intercultural education and related fields
  • Theoretical papers
  • Posters, particularly on intercultural educational experiences and/or pilot-projects
  • Book and audio/video presentations, particularly on didactical material relating to intercultural education and related fields
  • Art objects, theater and circus performances, films, etc.
  • Inspiring short workshops
  • Adaptive e-learning tools

For each of these categories, we are currently asking for abstracts, which should be sent to the respective strand chairs (see above).


  • The abstract should be between 200 and 400 words in length
  • Abstracts are to be submitted in English
  • The abstract has to specify the name, institutional affiliation and email address of the author(s) as well as the strand to which it is submitted.
  • Please specify also the equipment required for your presentation (PC, beamer, DVD player, Internet access, etc.).
Finally, you are asked to express your commitment to submit a complete version of your presentation once your abstract has been accepted


All abstracts should be sent by Sept. 1, 2019 directly to the Strand Chair(s). Also indicate a preference of day you would like to present.

We cannot guarantee that your presentation can happen on that day., but we will try our best.
Note that the presentations will take place within blocks of 90 minutes. We will attempt to keep the number of presentations to 4 per block, or less. This implies 15 minute presentations plus Q and A. Some strands will utilize a more dynamic World Cafe format at certain times, which will allow for longer presentations. This is at the discretion of the strand chairs.
Also note that we can accept  a maximum of 3 authors per paper and that one of those three authors has to attend the conference. If there are more than 3 authors, two authors need to attend and pay conference fees.
