ELLTA Conference 2017

Emerald and the International Journal for Lesson and Learning Studies are pleased to be publishing partners for ELLTA 2017. With a theme this year of 'Perspectives on Leadership, Learning and Social Enterprise in Asia: Sharpening Focus on Research Collaborations and Publications', the conference will be held 25-27 July 2017 in Bangkok.

ELLTA (Exploring Leadership and Learning Theories in Asia) aims to explore, understand, recognise, strengthen, encourage and promote exisiting theories (and thereby policies) and practices of leadership and/or learning in Asia. ELLTA seeks to address three main questions:

- Are the west-inspired theories on leadership and learning relevant for Asia in general and different contexts in Asia in particular?

- Is there a need to develop theories specific for Asia in general and different contexts in Asia in particular?

- Are there existing theories on leadership and learning with an Asian origin, which have not received much attention or have not been acknowedged so far?

More information about ELLTA and the conference can be found here.

Selected papers from the conference will be considered for publication in the International Journal for Lesson and Learning Studies as a Special Issue or individual papers (subject to peer review and depending on the quality and number of submissions on this theme).
