The year 2010 marks the 75th publication year of Koers: Journal for Christian Scholarship. In honour of the journal’s contribution to the promotion of interdisciplinary academic debate and philosophically-grounded scholarship, the Koers Association is hosting an international conference on “Worldview and Education”. We hereby invite all members of the academic community, policy makers, educators and other interested parties to attend, and participate in this event. By furthering academic dialogue and bringing together leading figures in the field, we hope to positively affect the education-related challenges specific to the South African situation.
The conference will be held in Johannesburg and Potchefstroom, South Africa from 30 May until 2 June 2011. Contributions focusing on the following themes have already been received, but we welcome papers that highlight different aspects of “Worldview and Education”: transformation and responsibility; epistemic frameworks and outcome-based education in South Africa; imagination, aesthetic engagement and societal change; language and cognition.
