 2011 ISEP CONFERENCE

BUDAPEST, HUNGARY

              41st Anniversary Conference, Budapest, Hungary

October 12 – 15, 2011

Welcome to Budapest

 

 

A warm welcome to the 41st Anniversary Conference of the International

Society for Educational Planning at this beautiful city of Budapest, Hungary. The theme of this particular conference is on “Globalization of Educational Planning”. For sure, in terms of membership and participation, we are highly globalized. Just in this conference, participants represent nine difference countries and unique cultures. This is not even counting how many languages we speak right here. I am very glad to see that we all make it to the conference to reflect the globalization theme of the conference. By reviewing the topics of presentation in this conference, we can easily detect the globalization of educational planning. Each presentation has its own unique focus reflecting the issue of the country while global implication is widely addressed. I am sure we all can learn from one another’s ideas and experiences to become a better global educational planner. I would strongly encourage that every conference participant work on elaborating the spirit of the International Society for Educational Planning. We are all here not only for sharing our scholarly work, but also for seeking opportunities to offer your service to others. This is what makes ISEP continuously strong and healthy throughout the years because we CARE about YOU. As ISEP president, I want to extend a very warm welcome to all new members and salute all long time members for their contributions to the Society. Enjoy the conference! Enjoy the fellowship!
