The International Alliance for Invitational Education cordially invites you to its 2012 Invitational Education World Conference - “Invitational Education : Human Potential Odyssey” and Inviting School Award Presentations to be held in Hong Kong, China, November 14-16, 2012.

The Invitational Education World Conference provides a professional platform where educators around the world meet and share their success stories in optimizing the potentials of our young people. We are honored to have William W. Purkey, Betty L. Siegel, John Novak, Peter Yarrow, Jim Mahoney, Charlotte Reed, Charles English, Lim Lan Chin, and other distinguished speakers from Hong Kong and mainland China as invited speakers for the 2012 IAIE World Conference. In addition to what will be a most inspiring and rewarding Conference, there will be visits to award-winning local and mainland schools to see how Invitational Education is implemented in different cultural contexts.

As the Pearl of the Orient, Hong Kong is a world-renowned metropolis where East meets West. This cultural integration is evident in our lifestyle as well as in our education. How the New Academic Structure (NAS) and the new Hong Kong Diploma for Secondary Education (HKDSE) fulfil their roles in optimizing student potentials and preparing them to be future leaders of this financial hub is a topic for discussion and research. Hong Kong is also a shoppers' paradise where you find everything you fancy at competitive prices.

Are you ready for all the excitement and fun that comes with intellectual stimulation, eye-opening experiences, magnificent sights and world-class culinary enjoyment? Enroll now! You are encouraged to register by June 25 2012 .
