It’s another whole year to be productive. Like last year when I presented 7 conference papers and published a few articles, this year I’m looking to present in 6 conferences.
3 weeks ago I already presented during the ALT Winter Conference on the topic of using console-based video games for learning. I’m glad that it was well received as it was a subject off the beaten path so to speak.
This year I am looking at presenting conferences in Asia instead of Europe. Currently, I am awaiting a favourable response for my paper submission for the BSA Bourdieu Study Group 2nd Biennial International Conference, 10-12 July at Lancaster, UK. Technically it is the only conference that I can present in the UK seeing that I will be in Manchester this July for my graduation.
Other than this specialised conference, I am hoping to present in these other events, most of which will be based in South East Asia.
- Education and Development Conference 2018, 5-7 March Bangkok Thailand
- 4th International Conference on Education (ICEDU 2018), 5-7 April, Bangkok Thailand
- 2nd International Conference on Education, Economics and Management Research, 9-10 June, Singapore
- 7th International Conference on Teaching, Education and Learning (ICTEL) 13-14 June, Singapore
- 8th International Conference on Future of Education, 28-29 June, Florence Italy
- The Singapore Education Technology Conference 2018 (SETC), 30-31 August, Singapore
- 8th Annual International Conference on Education and eLearning (EeL), 24-25 September, Singapore
3 conferences in Singapore and 1 in Thailand will be convenient for me to travel. I might go for another conference in the States if opportunity arises. Other than conferences, I will be completing my Google Scholarship this year (hopefully) though I haven’t been as active in the scheme as I should be. I am also in Amity University’s online Bachelor degree programme until 2020 but it has since fallen out of my priority with my writing a few papers for this year.
I am still working on a few research group projects with research teams in the Middle East, and I am still supervising a few Masters students for this year. So I am assured that I will remain in the loop with the academic world seeing that I am back in Brunei.
