Message from the Conference Chair

Dr Dina OcampoWelcome to the 10th International Conference on Teacher Education! Our conference theme, Educational Equity through Inclusion, brings to this venue seriously passionate advocates from different parts of the world. This is where we, researchers and teachers, gather to share about how quality education can become accessible to all learners of whatever circumstance such as gender, age, ethnicity, learning need or economic status. Through this conference, we hope to elevate our understanding about obstacles to educational equity in our communities.

Together, we reframe how quality education can be described and measured. Needless to say, we must look beyond student achievement. Thus, the selected papers which will be presented here can broaden our views on quality education. The experiences that will be shared dissect education delivery mechanisms, curriculum content, learner support and development services, learning environments, teacher education and development, education research and leadership from the lens social justice.

We are optimistic that by sharing the products of innovative interventions and inquiries, we can empower each other in our common aspiration of serving all learners judiciously according to their needs. Learning together will make us better teacher educators and researchers now and in the years to come. We can demonstrate our enriched understanding of education equity, inclusion and quality education through relevant instruction, research and extension service to our communities. This, indeed, is a fitting objective for all of us in this especially memorable year as our beloved UP College of Education celebrates its 100th anniversary.

Thank you for choosing to be with us in the next few days. Let us all have an invigorating conference!
