The ISKCON Ministry of Education’s annual education conference will be held in New Raman Reti dhama – Alachua, Florida June 21 through June 24, 2018. Alachua is home to two devotee run schools serving a combined 250 children from pre-k through high school.
The purpose of this year’s conference is to facilitate connections between fellow educators; learn best practices from peers and subject area experts; guide the future of ISKCON’s global educational initiatives; and to come away with goals and strategies to advance the area of education participants are involved in.
Each day will begin with a keynote speech followed by interactive breakout sessions based on the area of education participants are interested in. Keynote speakers this year are ISKCON’s minister of education, Sesa Dasa, and Vaishnava scholars, Hanumatpresaka Swami and Radhika Ramana Dasa.
Leaders from ISKCON’s various educational initiatives – Ram Giridhari Dasa, Hanumatpresaka Swami, Gopi Gita Dasi, Nrtya Kishori Dasi, Subhra Dasi, Balimardana Dasa, and Visvambhara Dasa have confirmed their attendance.
This event is being hosted by Bhaktivedanta Academy – the tuition-based pre-k through high school that has become a model for a sustainable and professional devotional school.
Anyone engaged in the field of education – school teachers/administrators, shastric and adult educators, and university level preachers are all encouraged to attend.
