The individual, social cohesion, and democratic citizenship in the age of educational capitalism.
Join Régis Malet, from the Université de Bordeaux, for a brief presentation and discussion on this pressing topic for global education professionals.
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.
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.
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, please do so via the Slack group. You will find the 'Direct messaging' facility on the menu stack on the left of the page.
If you have a question for the convenors and are not yet a member, you can reach them here.
The SIG uses Google Groups, an online platform for collaboration, to coordinate it's activities. If you join this group, you will receive email updates about activity, and also will be able to post to the group via the Google Groups interface. You can request to join the group here: https://groups.google.com/g/angel-te-sig. Please note that you will need to have a Google account attached to your email address to be able to access.
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.
