    Educational Research and Policy: Multiple Perspectives

  • The Association of Latin American Scholars (ALAS) is pleased to host its 10th Annual Education Across the Americas Conference at Teachers College, Columbia University.

  • This conference aims to create a space in which members of different learning and scholarly communities from Latin America, the Caribbean, and North America, share their experiences and knowledge on the promotion of educational development and educational change across the Americas. Through this transnational dialogue, scholars can learn from the research and analysis that has been done in different national, cultural, linguistic, political and economic contexts, and draw upon these experiences-- translating and adapting solutions and lessons learned.

  • We invite you-- scholars, educators, students, NGO representatives, advocates and researchers-- to join us this year at Teachers College, Columbia University, in New York City.
