At the end of 2024, the Global Innovation Network for Teaching and Learning (GINTL) will be moving to a new era. Our current funding scheme comes to an end and new plans need to be developed. The network coordination would therefore like to call for a two-day Dialogue event to reflect on what has been learnt, to envision future collaboration, and to share examples of current and past work. Day 1 of the Dialogue is addressed to all stakeholders who have already participated in GINTL activities, while Day 2 is open for everyone interested in Global Education Development.


Register by 3.6.2024 using the link to the registration form below.

Kindly note that although the Dialogue will be organised as a pre-conference to the conference “Reimagining Teachers and Teacher Education for our Futures”, registering for the Dialogue does not entitle you to participate in the main conferenceParticipation in the main conference requires separate registration and payment through the main conference website.
