Call for Proposals

Dear Esteemed Stakeholders,

The 8th one of International Symposium on Social Studies Education, which has been conducted since 2012, is going to be carried out on November 7-9, 2019 in Ankara, the capital of Turkey, with the cooperation of Ankara University Faculty of Educational Sciences andAssociation for Social Studies Educators.

In the symposium, it is aimed to find creative and different solutions to the problems encountered in the transfer of theoretical knowledge to the application of social studies and to create the necessary cooperation for the realization of these suggestions. For this purpose, the theme of the symposium was determined as “Social Studies Education from Theory to Practice”.

The primary purpose of the symposium is to present the research and application samples on the transfer of theoretical knowledge to life. Information production has increased in recent years with the effect of developing technology. This situation forces practitioners due to the increasing “information pollution”, and makes them weaker by combining with systemic problems. One of the focal points of the symposium will be the teachers so that they are not alone in this effort. One of the important aims of the symposium is to provide opportunities for teachers and prospective teachers in panels, workshops and presentations, and to bring their good examples together with the participants.

We invite you to take part in the VIII. International Symposium on Social Studies Education to take responsibility for raising the value of social studies education and to contribute in the field with your studies.
