Building on last year’s successful explorations of strengthening of relationships within Oceania and beyond, the theme for the 2016 OCIES conference aims to explore the notion of equity gaps in education throughout local, regional, and global contexts. We aim to consolidate the revitalisation of our regional society that began with our change of name last year, by continuing to encompass the diversity of issues, interests, perspectives, and contexts represented in Oceania and beyond.
As globalized forms of education continue to deepen and extend, the 2016 OCIES conference provides a unique opportunity to consider from various vantage points the wealth of gaps in achievement, funding, quality, policy, teaching, systems, and more. Educators and scholars in Oceania, and our OCIES society, have long explored these relationships and spaces and continue to navigate common and diverse perspectives and practices (Sanga 2012; Thaman 1993; 2012; Welch 2016). The 2016 OCIES conference seeks to bring educators, researchers, development practitioners, and policy actors together to put our minds to such gaps, toward more equitable education spaces within Oceania and beyond.
