Teachers first: excellence and prestige for the European Education Area
Tibor Navracsics, Commissioner for Education, Culture, Youth and Sport, will host the second European Education Summit on 26 September 2019 at SQUARE - Brussels Convention Centre, Place du Mont Des Arts, 1000 Brussels, Belgium. This second edition of the Summit will focus on the teaching profession and is entitled:
'Teachers first: excellence and prestige for the European Education Area'
What challenges are teachers facing today and what future developments do we need to anticipate? Are teachers adequately recognised by society? Do they receive the support they need? What is teachers’ role in bridging education and active participation in society and the labour market?
These are just some of the questions to be explored in a discussion led by teachers with ministers, academics and civil servants at this year’s European Education Summit.
During the Summit, Commissioner Navracsics will present the 2019 Education and Training Monitor. The Monitor investigates how well teachers are faring, and builds on the latest results of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development’s (OECD) Teaching and Learning International Survey data, among other research.
Alongside a number of in-depth discussions and keynote speeches, this year’s Summit will also include a workshop series entitled ‘The Classroom Experience’, which will examine innovative teaching methods and technology use enhancing modern learning experiences across Europe.
Due to limited capacity, the Summit is by invitation only, but there are plenty of ways in which you can keep up with what’s happening…
