EMINENT 2018 Conference: New models for developing teachers’ competences
13-14 December 2018, Lisboa


About the event

EMINENT is the Experts Meeting in Education Networking annual event organised by European Schoolnet. It brings stakeholders from across Europe together to discuss the next challenges and solutions for innovative education. Participation is by invitation only.

EMINENT 2018 will be devoted to new models for developing teachers’ competences. The topic is of high interest to our member Ministries of Education across Europe, who decided to make it this year’s focal issue. Developing our teachers’ competences is crucial, as they are the key agents of change and can drive innovation in the classroom, to benefit all students.

During the conference participants will have the opportunity to explore and discuss with experts and colleagues about new trends in teacher training models, and tackle questions such as what are the most effective forms of online professional development, and how can we successfully assess, recognise and certify it? Innovative case studies from our member countries will also be showcased in order to share best practice, and discuss collaboratively about challenges and solutions.

Delegations consisting of representatives of Ministries of Education from more than 30 countries, as well as our industry and project partners from across the education community will be present.

Thanks to our high profile keynote speakers and the variety of stakeholders and contributions, participants will have access to a unique pool of expertise and opportunities for networking, and be updated on the latest European policy developments in the fields of initial teacher education and continuous professional development.
