South East Asian International Regional Workshop
Hat Yai Campus of PSU: February 27-March 1 2017

Schools should be safe places with a positive climate and good relationships. Research has a vital role to play in helping teachers, pupils and parents. This workshop will focus on ways of improving social relationships in schools, school safety and school climate. It will not directly examine academic achievement, although safer and happier schools will also impact on this. The workshop will share expertise in these areas on a cross-disciplinary basis. In particular it will focus on new challenges as well as opportunities that face schools. These include:
  • Increased diversity (in ethnicity, faith, and immigrant pupils)
  • Use and abuse of new communication technologies and redesigning schools for the digital age
  • Dealing with problems of violence and bullying
  • Harnessing the potential of pupil participation and youth voice.
The workshop will provide a forum where early career researchers can meet and learn from senior scholars who have outstanding publishing backgrounds.
Early Career Scholars in Human Development, Education, Psychology or allied field with related relevant research with a PhD degree, or those enrolled, or within seven years of having received a doctorate degree are eligible to apply. Applications from the Asia region will be given preference.
Registration is free but the closing date for applications is very soon. Please contact Dr Ruthaychonnee (Ruth) Sittichai for details at her email address:
