Public Lectures

Public Lecture Series

The IEAL-J Public Lecture Series is an excellent opportunity to share up-to-date and relevant international and local research which has potential to influence changes to educational policy and practice. Public Lectures are held twice annually, in conjunction with our partners: University of Technology, Jamaica, and the University of the Commonwealth Caribbean.

 

IEAL-J Public Lectures are strictly by Invitation and are led, in turn, by one of the IEAL-J’s four Research Interest Groups (RIGs): (i) Educational Administration & Social Justice; (ii) STEM Education; (iii) Curriculum Innovation; and (iv) Health, Well-being & Society.

 

All IEAL-J Public Lectures are grounded in empirical research, and are open to the public and are free of charge.

Responsibility for organising the Public Lectures, and for considering any nominations for topics and speakers is managed by a “Standing Committee on Outreach & Public Engagement”, comprised of IEAL-J members and UTech staff
