Moderated e-Forum discussion on TVET teacher education [Edit]
UNEVOC e-Forum, 25 June - 6 July 2012
The 3rd moderator-driven discussion will take place from 25 June to 6 July 2012 on the UNEVOC e-Forum (http://www.unevoc.unesco.org/forum.php). The topic of the discussion is ‘TVET Teacher education’.
UNESCO and its Member countries consider teacher education as one of its principal priorities. The Shanghai Consensus (http://www.unesco.org/new/fileadmin/MULTIMEDIA/HQ/ED/pdf/3TVET-outcomes.pdf), which was drawn on the basis of the discussions held at the 3rd International TVET Congress that took place from 13 to 16 May 2012 in Shanghai, China, highlighted the importance of expanding access and improving quality and equity in TVET, and clearly states the necessity for "developing effective policies aimed at improving teaching and learning processes." Specifically, it advocates for the development of "policies and frameworks for professionalizing TVET staff, and develop and strengthen teaching standards for all levels." In line with this understanding, the 3rd moderator-driven discussion on TVET teacher education seeks to discuss the challenges and opportunities in this field, gather good practices and learn from experiences from the international TVET community.
The input from participants will be synthesized and summarized into a final synthesis report, which will provide directions for future research and programme work in this field. Your active participation in the discussion would be most gratefully received and we would also like to encourage you to circulate this event in your network.
