The 4th BNU-QUT-UC Doctoral Forum invites abstracts for paper and poster presentations related to the theme, Teacher Education: Theories and Practices from an International Perspective. It will be held on the campus of Beijing Normal University from 5th-11th November, 2018. This doctoral forum is open to all doctoral students in Faculty of Education, Beijing Normal University. FOE will select 4 doctoral students from all candidates to attend this forum.


The BNU-QUT-UC Doctoral Forum grew out of the long-term annual exchange program cooperated by Beijing Normal University (BNU) and The Queensland University of Technology (QUT), which aimed at providing doctoral students from both universities with a broader academic exchange platform and encouraging them to re-examine and enrich their own research from a cross-cultural perspective. The BNU-QUT Forum was held for ten consecutive sessions till 2014, and in 2015 the Werklund School of Education, University of Calgary (UC) joined in the forum. That was the time when the 1st BNU-QUT-UC Doctoral Forum was held. Since then, the three universities take turns to hold the forum in China, Canada and Australia.


As always, the 4th BNU-QUT-UC Doctoral Forum is open to all current doctoral students from Faculty of Education BNU. Academic experts from the three universities will be invited to give academic lectures and organize practical activities for students to visit local public schools and private schools, etc. Participating students will gain rich learning experience in presenting research, getting feedback and networking opportunities.
