This will allow educators from around the world to share reports of significant work or integrative reviews in theory, research, development, applications, and societal issues related to all aspects of education. Best Practices session presenters will discuss and demonstrate strategies, techniques, or solutions to common issues in education. This will be an opportunity to inform attendees about the lessons learned and future plans from those who have designed, developed, and implemented education in effective and/or innovative ways especially in the c. Individuals and groups can submit proposals. In order to accommodate the demand for presentations, all presentations will be limited to 15 minutes with 5 minutes for Q&A and transition to the next presenter.
