The 10th International Conference on Teacher Education (ICTED), a biennial gathering of teacher educators, researchers, policy makers, administrators, students, and allied professionals, will be held on 23-25 August 2018 at Seda Vertis North in Quezon City, Philippines. It is an opportune occasion to share experiences and create networks and a perfect forum for discussions that consider rapid intellectual and socio-economic transformations and emerging technologies, improved interconnectedness within the global village, and the challenge to uphold equity. The conference is one of the major events lined up to celebrate the centennial of the College of Education, University of the Philippines-Diliman.
This year’s theme, Educational Equity Through Inclusion, underscores the role of education as an agent for genuine social cohesion and equity which require breaking barriers and narrowing gaps between and among learners, families, schools, and other communities. It advances the view that inclusive education is all-embracing, and that it “is a comprehensive process of change across the education system through which the diverse needs of all learners are addressed and responded to, regardless of their social, economic, cultural, linguistic, physical, or other contexts” (UNESCO, 2013). The theme problematizes how inclusive education may be fostered through teacher education and professional development.
ICTEd 2018 aims to gather diverse perspectives that can inform curriculum, instruction, assessment, capacity-building mechanisms, as well as policy formulation and implementation.
