Reflective and collaborative dispositions for teachers' professional development

European vision in a context of hybridization of exchanges and inclusion.

The teacher education literature contains thousands of studies on how to prepare teachers to teach for equity and diversity, growing at hundreds per year. For teacher educators involved, there are too many individual studies to identify and consider when designing their curriculum. Many researchers have thus appraised, summarized and brought together existing studies in a single place. In recent years however, teacher educators are again overwhelmed by a plethora of reviews with more than one systematic review on the topic of teacher education in diverse settings. In this talk we present the results of a systematic review of reviews, allowing the findings of separate reviews to be appraised, compared and contrasted thereby providing teacher educators with the evidence they need. The  databases of web of Science, ERIC, ResearchGate, GoogleScholar and Scopus were systematically searched to identify systematic review papers and meta-analyses on the topic of teacher education for equity, diversity and inclusion.

The webinar will be held by Pr Els Consuegra** of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel, on Monday 7th November 2022, from 5 to 7 pm CET.
