U21 Teacher Education and Migration Colloquium

The School of Education is pleased to be hosting this Colloquium and welcomes U21 colleagues from the University of Johannesburg, South Africa and Lund University, Sweden from 8-10 October.

Human migration is occurring at unprecedented levels. Educational organisations must address the needs of migrants and mitigate the concerns and prejudices of local communities, yet little is known about how teacher educators and the teachers they work with are supported in addressing these challenges. This colloquium seeks to draw on the diverse strengths and expertise of three U21 institutions to begin a collaborative partnership developing curriculum and resources that can be incorporated into a variety of initial and continuing professional teacher education programmes.

The event will start with participants from each institution presenting an introduction to their own (initial) teacher education programmes and to the ways in which the topic of migration is currently addressed. Sessions during the three-day event will culminate towards establishing a common framework and sharing of learning  with teacher education colleagues in the University of Nottingham School of Education.
