The XVIII IOSTE Symposium

IOSTE - International Organization for Science and Technology Education

The International Organization for Science and Technology Education was established to advance the cause of education in science and technology as a vital part of the general education of the peoples of all countries and to provide scholarly exchange and discussion in the field of science and technology education. Consistent with our mission to encourage the peaceful and ethical use of science and technology in the service of humankind, IOSTE opposes the use of science and technology by government or other organizations for military purposes against civilians.


XVIII IOSTE Symposium: 
Future educational challenges from science and technology perspectives

August 13-17, 2018 Malmö University, Sweden

The theme of the conference, Future educational challenges from science and technology perspectives, underlines aspects of great relevance for contemporary science education research: the need to reflect on different perspectives, stress the relationship between science, technology and society, emphasize the cultural and human values, the role of knowledge, learning processes and context, formal or non-formal. Highlighting these themes means to promote contact and dialogue across political and ideological borders to recognize sustainability, cultural diversity and international understanding.
