It is my great pleasure to welcome you to the 2021 International Conference of the Korean Association for Science Education (KASE).
KASE has led science education research and practice since 1976 in Korea through publishing the Journal of the Korean Association for Science Education (JKASE) and holding academic conferences twice per year. KASE has expanded its effort to promote international collaboration by publishing an English journal, Asia-Pacific Science Education (APSE), since 2015 and by holding international conferences.
The theme of this year is "Walking together toward Inclusive Science Education by Creating Equitable Science Learning Opportunities." The theme is timely because it reflects the social and educational changes both in Korea and worldwide. Recently Korea has been moving towards a multicultural society, and the economic polarization of Korean society is increasing. The Korean government has committed to pursuing the goal of inclusive growth. The Ministry of Education of Korea has put an emphasis on fostering inclusive education for students with special needs and those who are marginalized.
We have invited renowned scholars in this field from all over the world: Okhee Lee, Angela Calabrese-Barton, Jennifer Adams, Sungmin Im, Alberto Bellocchi, Anna T. Danielson, Ching-Ting Hsin, Christina Siry, Tang Wee Teo, Tali Tal, and Jonte C. Taylor. I really appreciate their willingness to share their expertise during the conference and their kind participation. I believe that this conference will be an invaluable opportunity for all participants to raise their understanding of and gain insight on the theme and science education in general.
I certainly believe that this conference will bear fruitful results and lay firm groundwork for future development of science education research. I am looking forward to seeing you at the 2021 International Conference of KASE.
