Focus: Teachers Exchanging Knowledge and Building Communities via International

Led by: James Underwood

Date: Tuesday 20.10.15

Time: 1.00-2.00pm

Room: S007, Park Campus

James considers the potential impact of international networking and knowledge exchange on the professional identities of teachers. He focuses on the experiences of teachers from the Balkans working with colleagues in the UK and proposes that rather than seeing their experiences purely as opportunities to transfer practice, these teachers may be more interested in developing as skilled professionals and societal leaders.
