Seeking ideas for Special Interest Groups.

The ANGEL network aims to bring together all those with an interest in research on global education, to strengthen existing groupings of researchers and create new ones. As part of this mission, we are seeking to create 'Special Interest Groups' (SIGs) of researchers who come together to focus on a particular topic or theme.

Our pilot SIG, created in 2021, focuses on teacher education. You can find information about this SIG here, and watch a video of the group's public seminar on the ANGEL YouTube channel.


Future SIGs

The ANGEL coordinating group plan to create several further SIGs, and hope to launch a second in 2022. As part of ANGEL's ethos of being guided by the needs of its membership, we want this process to be steered by the membership itself. 

So, we are asking ANGEL members to provide some ideas on priority areas and topics that could form the basis of new SIGs. Ideas received via informal submission over the last year include: 

  • Decolonial approaches
  • Climate change education
  • Representation of people in education material and charity messaging
  • Focusing on theoretical frameworks

When considering your idea, ask yourself a few questions:

  • Is there an existing community or forum that already focuses on this topic or area?
  • Is there something about this topic or area that would mean that international participation and input would be particularly fruitful?
  • Are there obvious potential outputs for a group focused on this topic or area?

To contribute, please complete this short online form by the 21st June.
