In 2015 ETAI established a Special Interest Group (SIG) dedicated to Teacher Training and Development (TT&D). Among the aims of the TT&D SIG are to generate ETAI conference sessions on a higher academic level for the general teacher population and see more teacher trainers and college instructors participate in the conference.
Statement of Purpose
Create a forum for discourse on TT&D
Broaden ETAI’s reach to a larger population of TTs
Create a community of TT’s within the wider framework of ETAI
A three-pronged approach:
TTs as teachers: more TTs giving sessions at ETAI conferences
TTs as peers of Ts: exchanging ideas
College and university instructors, teacher trainers in the pedagogical (pisga) centres, inspectors and counsellors.
