This Symposium is open to all with an interest in teacher experience at the time of COVID-19.
To accommodate colleagues living in different time zones, the Symposium will be repeated. The first symposium is being held on Thursday 8th October, 10 am New York time, 3pm London time and the second on Thursday 15th October 2pm Tokyo time. These times mean the symposium is accessible during working hours around the world. The Eventbrite bookings are registering for the the UK and Tokyo times, but times have been chosen to be inclusive. Please register for a ticket at either or both events. You will then be emailed joining instructions.
– meet up with educators from different countries
– discuss the interim research report from teachers across 30 countries which will be shared with participants
– contribute your experiences and comment on the report
The focus for the symposium and for discussions in breakout rooms will be teachers’ experiences at the time of COVID-19. Teachers in countries around the world have faced extraordinary challenges during 2020 as they were asked to adapt within days to remote and home schooling because of school closures to limit the spread of COVID-19.
During the Symposium initial findings from our new research into teachers’ experiences will be presented. This research is being undertaken in 30 countries across all UNESCO regions. Those attending will be invited to participate in small group breakout sessions (English, Spanish, Portuguese) to share their views on the report and how teachers and education systems can be better prepared and supported to ensure continuity of learning in times of crises. These ideas will be documented and included in the final report titled A Global Report of Snapshots of educator experiences during COVID- 19: Their recommendations for the future. This report will be shared with international organizations in the hope they can help to shape future policy. The report will also be circulated to all symposia participants.
The research is being undertaken voluntarily by members of ICET (http://www.icet4u.org) and the MESHGuides network (http://www.meshguides.org) during the period June – September 2020.
We look forward to meeting up with you
