WORLD FUTURE FORUM: CALL FOR PAPERS ENDS FEB. 18, 2019
We invite you to join us at the World Future Forum in Chicago. The Forum will offer a unique opportunity for school administrators, academics, and other professionals - from around the world - to present a wide array of perspectives and expertise in the pursuit of excellence in post-high school education. Most importantly, this group of academics will share the best studies and practices for one common goal and our priority: to ensure transition, college persistence, and career readiness.
This brand-new conference is spearheaded by the Future Institute Research Center (FIRC). The members of the Center are from the following institutions:University of Wisconsin- Madison, Bradley University, University of Northern Iowa, and Future Institute. FIRC plans and conducts rigorous research on college and career success, and disseminates the findings, which leads to data-driven decision making.
Transitioning to Tomorrow: College and Career Readiness for Success is the theme of World Future Forum 2019. The Forum's goal is to examine and fit together the following individual "pieces" of the complex puzzle that is secondary and post high school education:
- College Transition and Persistence
- Workforce Skills and Demands
- Next Generation High Schools
- College and Career Outcomes of High Schools
- Academic Preparation for College Readiness
- Student Debt
- Post-High School Challenges
- Technology and Innovation in Education
We seek research papers in these interdependent areas.
