Announcement: 35th International Society for Teacher Education (ISfTE) Seminar 2015: June 21 – 26


Dear NJ Fulbrighters,

Here is a seminar information we would like to share with you.



Welcome to the 35th International Society for Teacher Education (ISfTE) Seminar 2015: June 21 – 26

Host: Montclair State University, Montclair, NJ

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, this international seminar has convened in a different country each year. In that time it has taken place in every world continent and region. Recent venues include Brazil (2010), Norway (2011), Bhutan (2012), Hong Kong (2013), Turkey (2014). Future seminars include South Africa (2016).

The six-day seminar attracts about 100 – 180 participants from all over the world who collectively examine and discuss the critical issues facing global teacher education. A range of keynote presentations on critical topics by acknowledged experts drives the focus of the proceedings. Participants have the opportunity to present “prior to publication” papers within small peer group settings for collegiate consideration, discussion and counsel. Outcomes include press releases, published proceedings, journal publications, including in JISTE, the society’s own refereed journal, joint research projects, faculty and student exchange programs, and the continuing development of a global teacher education network. This is a vibrant event that brings professionals from a wide range of global societies, cultures, communities, situations, and circumstances together in a shared cause.

We are looking forward to seeing educators, teachers, researchers, and policy makers from around the world at the 35th ISfTE Conference.

Warm regards

Dr. Jacalyn Willis, Director, PRISM, Montclair State University
