UArctic Thematic Network on Teacher Education for Social Justice and Diversity focuses on teacher education for different levels of education, with a specific focus on social justice and diversity in education. The UArctic, Universities of Arctic's thematic networks foster issues-based cooperation within networks that are focused but flexible enough to respond quickly to topical Arctic issues. Read more about UArctic thematic networks (TNs) www.uarctic.org.
The network will enhance teacher education for equality and social justice in the Arctic region. Short-term goals will be to advance shared research on topics relevant to TN’s members, establish steady cooperation between teacher educators across the member universities, and stimulate staff and student exchange. A long-term goal will be to develop a virtual research and resource centre for high quality teacher education research and practice.
The network aims to facilitate interaction and promote research and joint teaching among the teacher education programmes in the member universities. At the initial stage, the network envisages the following:
- Shared research
- Publishing a joint book
- Joint conference presentations
- Co-authoring research articles
- Common study modules/study courses
- Student/teacher/researcher mobility, both short-term and full-term visits, including teaching and research
Co-creating culturally responsive arctic pedagogies and transformative teacher education to enable agency and sustainability for the Circumpolar North.
