Welcome

The 28th International Congress for School Effectiveness and Improvement

ICSEI 2015 takes place in beautiful Cincinnati, Ohio, USA, January 3-6, 2015.

You're invited to be part of a unique gathering that brings together international researchers, educators, and policy-makers to share how we can improve children's lives through the best educational practices.

Presenters from as many as 50 countries will provide an international perspective on this year's theme.   Join colleagues from Asia, Australia, New Zealand, the Americas, Europe, the Middle East, and Africa to learn and share research about effective schools and educational programs worldwide.  ICSEI 2015 builds on its previous 27 international conferences, most recently in Chile and Indonesia offering an opportunity for researchers, policy makers and practitioners to gather in centrally located Cincinnati to address today?s pressing educational challenges.

ICSEI 2015 themes draw on the best of research and professional wisdom to explore the history and future of school reform; teacher effects from 1970s to the present; school- and system-level improvements; and the global and local implications of the 2013 Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) scores.
 
As the conference comes to a close, take the opportunity to visit the exemplary schools of the Cincinnati region to better understand how policy can be put into practice.

We look forward to meeting you in Cincinnati, the Queen City in the Heartland of the USA, to share a stimulating and productive time.
