Conference Brief

The major aim of 2nd ICRPE 2017 is to provide an opportunity to rethink about the educational impact in bringing social change. Education in the new world is being restructured with the emerging techniques, methods and computer applications. The paradigm shift that had started in the mid of twentieth century not only overcome all old and traditional schools of thought but also added a lot more responsibility for the educators and specifically to the researchers in the field.
