Welcome to the 34th International Society for Teacher Education (ISfTE) Conference 2014

The International Society for Teacher Education (ISfTE) is an independent organization of teacher educators free of external political or economic controls. It is dedicated to the improvement of teacher education in all settings by fostering discussion, critical analysis, and dissemination of ideas from research and innovative practice in teacher education.

Since 1981, the Society has met in different countries for an Annual Conference lasting about four days at which participants present papers for discussion in small groups. The Conference is based on a special format, which encourages constructive dialog on contemporary issues in teacher education and is accompanied by experiences, which help participants to understand the educational environment of the host country.

We are looking forward to seeing educators, teachers, researchers, and policy makers from around the world at the 34th ISfTE Conference, which will be held in Antalya, Turkey in April 2014.

Kind regards,

Honorary President of the ISfTE 2014
