The WCE has been a prime international forum for both researchers and industry practitioners to exchange the latest fundamental advances in the state of the art and practice, Pedagogy, Arts, History, Open Learning, Distance Education, Math and Science Educution, ICT, Language Learning, Education (Early Year, Secondary, Post-Secondary and Higher), E-Learning, and identify emerging research topics.

The WCE-2020 encourages you to submit workshop proposals. Workshop duration is 90 minutes. All the accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings. You can consider organising a workshop that is related to WCE-2020 topics.

The purpose of these workshops is to provide a platform for presenting novel ideas in a less formal and possibly more focused way than the conferences themselves. It offers a good opportunity for young researchers to present their work and to obtain feedback from an interested community. The format of each workshop is to be determined by the organisers, but it is expected that they contain ample time for general discussion. The preference is for one day workshops, but other schedules will also be considered.

Accepted Workshops

Workshop 1: Classrooms: Empowering and Nurturing Thinking Cultures

Scope: How can classrooms become places to empower, develop and engage students to independently think, question and be creative? According to Ritchhart (2004), learning is a consequence of thinking, and developing a culture of thinking is critical if we want to propel learning forward and motivate learners to confidently embrace challenges. Therefore, creating classrooms that are cultures of thinking is crucial. What are cultures of thinking? Well, cultures of thinking are places in which a group’s collective as well as an individual’s thinking is valued, visible and actively promoted, as part of the students’ day-to-day experience (Ritchhart, R. 2011).

Objective and Motivation: There are 8 culture forces that help create classrooms that are cultures of thinking. The aim of this workshop is to showcase three important culture forces which are, power of language, questioning and thinking routines that are crucial in helping create classrooms that are cultures of thinking. The 90 minute workshop will cover the following:
• Define Cultures of Thinking
• The Guiding Principles
• Brain – Based Teaching and Learning
• The Challenges to enact to enact the principles
• Practices we can employ

Organiser: Cynthia Yolanda Doss, University of Nottingham Malaysia Campus, Malaysia
