The Comparative and International Education Society’s (CIES) annual conference took place in April this year
in San Francisco. And BurdaEducation is happy to announce that it participated in both the very successful
CIES 2019 Pre-Conference Workshop, and the main conference that took place thereafter, as well.
Dr. Penelope Bender, Head of Global Education Services at BurdaEducation, was one of the facilitators at the
well-attended conference. She and her team met with more than 60 participating individual and organizations,
and provided relevant technical information to the several hundred guests who visited the BurdaEducationbooth.
The CIES conference aimed at enabling all participants—policy makers, multilateral agencies, researchers, analysts, and governmental and non-governmental organizations—create sustainable and equitable programs for the creation, production, distribution, and use of textbooks and teaching materials that expand access to knowledge and promote collaborative learning experiences.
