Lately, geographies of education seem to have come alive to debates focusing on mobility and migration and how these affect and influence educational experiences. The scope of these mobilities can vary from more localised internal mobility, to international migrations designed to achieve the best possible education outcomes, to transnational education strategies put in place by education providers or governments, to name but a few. Research in this area has developed across the spectrum of education from primary through to higher education experiences.
Recognising this bounty, this session welcomes papers which address and capture the diversity of scholarship on educational migrations and mobilities, whether focusing on formalised or informal education and whether from the perspective of students, households, education practitioners and facilitators, or policy. Furthermore, given that these debates lend themselves both to quantitative and qualitative study, we encourage papers from all methodological perspectives.
Topics for consideration include but are not limited to: • insights into mobility/migration in primary, secondary and tertiary education contexts; • short term or credit-bearing mobilities; • international student perspectives and experiences; • transnational, internal and/or international student migration/mobilities; • policies and strategies which facilitate education migrations; • perspectives and insights from education providers, teachers and instructors.
