Call for papers has reopened! But hurry, submissions close 31st January 2020.
nasen and UCL are both delighted to bring ISEC 2020 to the heart of London this year. The unique event that only takes place every five years will be between Monday 3rd – Wednesday 5th August 2020.
The event seeks to bring together academics, teachers, educational practitioners, parents and carers to share research, knowledge and practical experiences for the benefit and enrichment of young people living with special education needs and disabilities.
The organising committee have reopened the calling for abstract submissions that fall within one of the following themes:
- Knowledge Exchange
- Innovative Practices
- Inclusion as Social Justice
- Parents as Partners
- Lifelong Inclusion
We hope to provide an exchange of knowledge between those in higher education and those in the schools, families, and communities that work directly with individuals who need additional support.
The closing date for submissions is Friday 31st January 2020. You can find out more about the abstract review process here.
