Rob Blanchard PhotoWe are very pleased to announce that the keynote speaker for this year’s P4E conference is Dr. Alan Sears. Dr. Sears is a Professor of Social Studies Education at the University of New Brunswick, and the lead researcher for the citizenship domain in People for Education’s Measuring What Matters project. He is also one of the authors of a new book to be released this fall, “Education, Globalization and the Nation“. His research has focused on how children and young people understand key ideas related to citizenship.

Alan will talk about citizenship education, where we see it in today’s schools, and the impact it can have on our future. You can read Alan’s Measuring What Matters paper on citizenship education here.

Registration for the conference will open in early September. Sessions fill quickly, and the conference sells out overall, so please register early. We look forward to seeing you on November 7!
