2021 Yidan Prize Doctoral Conference Proceedings

‘What is the future of edcation?’ This is the theme we explored at our inaugural Yidan Prize Doctoral Conference was launched as a precursor to the Yidan Prize Conference Series: Europe 2021.


We received 50 submissions from all over the world representing some of the leading thoughts of young researchers globally. Through a blind review process conducted by six leading academics in the Department of Education at the University of Oxford, 20 papers were chosen to be presented at the doctoral conference. We’re delighted to share the full conference proceedings below, exploring equity, the use of technology, and student well-being, among other important themes.


We plan for this conference to be the start of a new community of scholars, connected globally as their research grapples with what the future of education should look like.
