Summer Academy 2020

The second Summer Academy of the International Forum for Teacher Educators’ Professional Development (InFo-TED)

University of Limerick / Ireland 24-26 June 2020

The International Forum for Teacher Educator Development (InFo-TED) organizes a second Summer Academy for experienced teacher educators in 2020. The aim of the Summer Academy is to gather experienced teacher educators to encourage collaborative research and professional development work. Bringing together teacher educators as a group can generate a network and empower teacher educators in diverse national settings to contribute to the professional development of teacher educators.

The Summer Academy encourages the expertise development of teacher educators. Informed by a conceptual model of teacher educator development, diverse themes are introduced and discussed in groups. The Summer Academy provides the opportunity for teacher educators to explore their own professional story using insights from relevant literature. Participants have space to collaborate in diverse groups on themes relevant for the professional development of teacher educators leading to a joint venture, e.g., conference presentation.

We are encouraging individual teacher educators, as well as those who are working together in groups of two or three, to join us. More specifically, we are inviting school-based and institute-based teacher educators to come together in applying to attend. Information on the 2018 Summer Academy is available here
