Special Interest Group on Teacher Education

Member-driven group examines the evidence and research on approaches to global education and global citizenship education within teacher education provision.

When ANGEL conducted member consultation on the focus of proposed Special Interest Groups (SIGs), one of the most mentioned possibilities was to focus on teacher education, and particularly - what is the evidence and research on approaches to global education and global citizenship education within teacher education provision? 

This SIG, launched in Autumn 2021, will function as something of a pilot group, with others planned to launch in the near future. 


SIG news & updates

The Special Interest Group has an activity homepage that collates all events, news items and publications that are relevant to the group. Click the button below to access, or browse via the main 'News' menu.


Proposed / possible activities:

  • Regular online meetings to compare approaches to teacher education and share research
  • Developing joint funding proposals
  • Space within the ANGEL website to share issues emerging from the group
  • Symposium at relevant ANGEL conferences and events
  • Opportunity to coordinate special issues of journals that ANGEL has relationships with
  • Bring together series of papers that could form a book to be published within the ANGEL book series on global citizenship education with Bloomsbury

Support for the establishment and running of the SIG is provided by the secretariat of ANGEL, but the executive leadership consists of three SIG convenors who were elected by the SIG members, and who will fulfil the role for a maximum of three years. 



Please find below the details of the co-convenors elected in September 2021, with hyperlinks to a document with their biography and also their reasoning for their interest in the role. The three candidates decided to share the role as co-convenors.

If you have already joined and want to contact the convenors, you can reach them here.



The SIG uses Gaggle Mail, a simple LIST-SERV alternative, to coordinate it's activities. If you join this list, you will receive email updates about activity, and also will be able to email the group. 


Want to join?

You can join at any point. Just email the ANGEL secretariat and we will add you to the list. You'll need to be an ANGEL member to join.


Do you have an idea for another SIG?

Members are also encouraged to suggest other SIGs on themes that could attract at least 10 people. Please be in touch with the ANGEL secretariat and we will initiate further calls for participation.
