This unique event was planned by Leadership for Learning: the Cambridge Network (LfL) together with Education International (EI), the global federation of teacher organisations; the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development’s Centre for Educational Research and Innovation (OECD/CERI); and Open Society Foundations (OSF). An invitation only event, the delegates included a range of academics and policy makers from across the world together with local practitioners.
The purpose of the seminar was to explore research and policy in relation to teacher quality and the development of the teaching profession. It was intended to not only inform the future of teacher policy generally but also contribute to events such as the then forthcoming 2012 World Summit on the Future of the Teaching Profession and the OECD’s 2013 Teaching and Learning International Study.
ILE made an important input in the organization and discussions at this seminar.
