Created: 2017.03.16. 13:38 Modified: 2017.05.31. 13:49

International Scientific Conference of the University of Novi Sad, Hungarian Language Teacher Training Faculty in Subotica


Date: 19–21 October, 2017

Place: Hungarian Language Teacher Training Faculty, Subotica, 11 Strossmayer Street

Throughout the last ten years, beside its continuous effort to ensure high quality of university education, the Hungarian Language Teacher Training Faculty in Subotica responds to various didactic and methodological challenges as well as develops the scientific and theoretical framework of the profession. Thus, three serial international scientific conferences were founded:

  • International Interdisciplinary Scientific Conference
  • International Methodological Scientific Conference
  • International Conference on ICT in Education

In 2017, the conference aims to focus on the various aspect of the following topic:


“The Challenges of Contemporary Education”

          Contemporary education will be defined as didactic and pedagogic scenes which are organized for pupils of the internet generation. How much does the offer of current education satisfy the learners of this particular generation? To what extent are they willing to bear a form of education in which they indeed sit, listen and watch? The foundations of class-subject-lesson system of education were born four centuries ago. Can the didactics of that system satisfy the contemporary style of learning and living of pupils? What would have Komenski written if he had an insight into the theory of multiple intelligence, curricular theory as well as such printed and digital forms of media that learners currently dispose of? The above mentioned facts trigger several questions and challenges for didactics, school pedagogy and scholarly docimology.  As a start, it would be beneficial to list all the questions and issues that arise along the formation of new theories of learning and teaching within the current information and communication revolution which started in this century.

The conference topic will be discussed in three main sessions; to be specific from a general interdisciplinary and methodological aspect as well as from the perspective of ICT in education.

The conference is open for all participants who show interest in elaborating on the topic of challenges in contemporary education. We remain at your disposal for any further questions.

We are looking forward welcoming you in Subotica.

                                   Yours sincerely,


Josip Lepeš, PhD
