Call FOR PROPOSALS

Global processes such as the demand for and the promise of high quality teaching and learning in institutes of higher education, as well as equity and social justice, have all had an impact on teacher education.Other changes are expected in the near future. These recent processes require new and innovative perspectives on teacher education, emanating from research, theory and practice.
We are pleased to invite you to participate in The 7th International Conference of Teacher Education: The Story of Innovation in Teacher Education that will take place from June 24 to June 26, 2019, at The MOFET Institute, in Tel Aviv, israel.
