Keynote speaker

“The local and the global dimensions of the teaching profession” by Prof. Dr. Annette Scheunpflug

This keynote will explore the local and the global dimensions of the teaching profession. On the one hand, the demands on teachers are locally bound: They teach students day in and day out in a specific place in a cultural heritated environment. On the other hand, teaching is integrated into the global society and should prepare students to deal with global challenges. The keynote will illuminate this glocality of the teaching profession and follow up with empirical data on teachers’ perceptions in this regard. Suggestions for teacher education that arise from this background will be discussed.

Annette Scheunpflug is Professor for Foundations in Education at the Otto-Friedrich-University of Bamberg, Germany. Her research focuses on educational quality, global learning, anthropology in education and the relation between religion and education. She is chair of the board of GENE – Global Education Network Europe and member of the board of the International Bureau of Education of UNESCO in Geneva. She holds an honorary doctor from the University of Oulu/Finland.

ERASMUS: Participants for this workshop should inquire with the International Office of their home university, if they can be funded for an Erasmus STT Training mobility. This does not require an Inter-institutional Erasmus agreement between universities, but only a so-called Mobility Agreement for training. If you plan to come via ERASMUS STT please write a short request for an ERASMUS STT inviation (in the headline of the e-mail) for the dates of the ETEN workshops including your name, surname, e-mail, the university you are coming from and the country.
