#CCEAM 2018 will be held in Malta from 13 to 16 November 2018. The theme of the conference is "Professional Learning: a leadership opportunity and challenge", which focuses on the central role that leaders and teachers play in creating opportunities to engage critically with the teaching and learning process. Professional learning needs to sit at the core of the communities of practice that are needed to address the various challenges that educators face today. This conference does just that. It will focus on 4 main themes with the intent of giving researchers and practitioners alike the opportunity to share current research and present frameworks and strategies that are being used to successfully bring about improved teaching and learning.
