Tuesday 19 June – Wednesday 20 June
This exciting joint (with the University of Worcester and British Educational Research Association) conference entitled ‘Global Perspectives in Teacher Education’ will focus on a number of important themes related to the impact of globalisation and internationalisation on sustainable teacher education. The conference will consider ideas such as inclusion, sharing knowledge across the globe, curriculum and its impact on knowledge generation, globalising teacher education, developing evidence-informed practice and self-improving systems, diversity, global citizenship, and intercultural education. This conference takes forward some of the issues explored during last year’s conference entitled ‘Bridging the Global Educational Gap’, where we continued to look at UNESCO Education 2030: A Framework for Action and Education in a Global Context. This year’s conference will consider concrete solutions which support the UNESCO Education 2030 goals with the aim of allowing partnerships, networks and collaborations to be developed that will take forward some purposeful and real projects to support the development and vision of high-quality sustainable teacher education across the world.
The conference is aimed at researchers, academics, consultants, practitioners, teachers, research students and professionals working in fields such as international, inter-cultural and comparative education, curriculum development, education policy and practice. It will be a wonderful opportunity to make connections with others in your field and to support strong research-informed practice.
