Eten 2019 editorial


This is the 14th volume of the Journal of the European Teacher Education Network

(JETEN) and the 7th volume online. In recent years, JETEN has become registered on the

Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) and this year became registered in the

PKP|INDEX (Public Knowledge Project index). Last year it was also proposed for JETEN

to be listed in Elsevier’s SCOPUS. This increases the visibility of JETEN among other peerreviewed

journals, and also serves to assure scientific quality, but mostly it increases the

ability of JETEN to be a reference for all educators and teachers who do research in the

area of education.

The articles in this volume come from the European Teacher Education Network’s

(ETEN) 28th Annual Conference hosted by Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences, The

Netherlands, March 22-24, 2018. The conference theme was “Diversity as Resource”.

Within the urban context of Rotterdam, opportunities and strengths that diversity offers

to the educational system were discussed.

As does the ETEN conference, JETEN promotes an international discussion of research

in education and on the preparation of teachers, as well as intellectual and academic

exchanges among educators, students, and institutions through the publication and

dissemination of JETEN and the ongoing work of ETEN. Comprised of refereed articles

from the conference, this 14th volume contains a selection of ten articles from six of the

thirteen Thematic Interest Groups (TIGs), which are: Mathematics Education – 1;

Movement/Play/Health/Outdoor Learning – 4; Reflective Learning and Teaching for

Thinking – 2; Special Education Needs – 1; Teacher Learning, Science & Technology – 1;

Urban Education – 1.

The authors came from different educational institutions from eight countries:

Denmark, Ethiopia, France, Germany, Israel, Norway, Portugal, and the United Kingdom.

As the Editorial Board, we gratefully acknowledge the work of the TIG leaders who

organized the conference sessions and made possible the existence of this journal by

the presentations that occurred within each TIG and that become the set of articles that

were submitted to the peer review process. Each manuscript was blind-reviewed by a

minimum of three referees and those accepted were then revised and improved by the

authors as requested. We are grateful to the authors as well, as to all the referees who

carefully reviewed and provided sound feedback to the authors.

Finally, we, the editors, would like to mention that the edition of this volume is a very

special one for us, because it will be the last one that we will edit. The ETEN board

decided in 2012 that JETEN should be available only online. After spending several years

preparing a platform, organizing the registration and layout of the journal, this journal

is now a reality, with academic visibility. Now it is time to change and to pass the

responsibility to a new editorial board. Thus, we would like to thank to all those who

have made this project a reality, TIG leaders, ECOS, Board, Authors, Reviewers and

Institutions. We wish the entire ETEN community and our successors all success in

making JETEN an intervention and research publication for the teachers and students

from all over the world.
