Think Globally Act Locally: A Challenge to Education Leaders

The world has become a global village. In order to address today's life challenges, we need to broaden our intellectual horizons. This theme challenges today's educational leaders and managers to think more and act more. The role of Educational Leadership, Management and Administration in understanding, shaping and re-shaping education for economic and social progress in this global village cannot be over-emphasised. Thus the conference theme invites African and other perspectives of global and local leadership. It seeks to provide a forum for an examination of the interface between schools, other education structures and communities. It wishes to foreground the role of information and communication technology in the leadership and management of education.



The conference programme will provide for leading keynote speakers, plenary sessions, parallel paper and poster presentations through the following sub-themes:

African and other perspectives on leadership

Professional ethics, personality traits, spirituality and values in Leadership and Management

The interface between schools and local education structures

The school-community interface

ICT as a tool for enhancing Educational Leadership and Management

Emerging trends in Educational Leadership, Management, Administration and Governance
