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
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.
