The importance of global education is becoming self-evident across the world. In Taiwan, a national policy was launched in April 2011 to implement global/international education in K-12 schools. This bi-lingual (English and Chinese) conference aims to bring together scholars and practitioners from Taiwan and abroad to discuss global education, its theories, practices, and issues of teacher development as they manifest in diverse national and cultural contexts.
