Starting this year, the successful international conference will be aimed at students from teacher trainer colleges for both primary and secondary education.
Theme of the conference will be: ‘Educating teachers for diversity: meeting the challenge!’ Diversity has become the new standard in our continuously globalizing world, not only in terms of nationality, but also of religion, social class, and so on. As a result, this reality is reflected in the composition of a class of students. As a (future) teacher, you have the opportunity to teach students how to deal with both the difficulties and opportunities of diversity.
The focus during the TIE2017 Conference, will be on how to successfully deal with diversity in the classroom. Students and teachers will work in international groups on an international project plan about diversity and will be guided by coaches. During the final day of the conference each group will present their plan to the other groups. Coaches are able to travel under the Erasmus+ programme.
Accommodation and catering will be free for student participants. The only fee for students will be € 50, - of administration costs.
The conference fee for persons from the field is € 150 euros (accommodation and catering is included).
