Dear Colleagues,

‘The International Symposium on Changes and New Trends in Education’ will be held on 22nd-24th November, 2013 in Ahmet Keleşoğlu Faculty of Education, Necmettin Erbakan University, KONYA, TURKEY. The symposium will be held in honor of Dr.Ahmet KELEŞOĞLU, an education volunteer, who has a great responsibility for the people of our country and had always worked for the education of our young people. That the symposium will be held in honor of Dr.Ahmet KELEŞOĞLU particularly makes us happy.

Our world has been changing rapidly in the 21st century; the society and paradigms in education have also been changing. The previous paradigms in education have been losing their validity. In addition to the changes in paradigms of education, it has become mandatory to analyze the changes which will affect the future of education. We believe that ‘The International Symposium on Changes and New Trends in Education’ will be a beginning to fulfill this function.

New paradigms in education discover new orientations in education-insruction practices. It also makes the institutions’ being reconstructed mandatory. The symposium aims to enable findings of new developments to be discussed; sample applications of new trends in all the fields of education to be shared; restructuring trends of institutions to be discussed. At this point, it is hoped that the symposium will create opportunities for important sharings.

‘The International Symposium on Changes and New Trends in Education’ aims to be on the plotform where the developments coming fore front in the arena of new trends in education to be discussed by academicians, educational administrators, teachers, educational specialists and teacher candidates.

We wish your participation and contribution; and extend our regards.
