Teachers: Leading in crisis, reimagining the future

2020 has been a challenging year for schools and teachers who have had to adjust to new ways of working. More than ever, there is a need for educators around the world to connect and learn from each other in order to find effective ways of ensuring students continue learning, either remotely from home, in physically-distanced face-to-face classrooms or a combination of the two.

The UNESCO World Teachers' Day 2020, celebrated on 5 October every year, is a perfect opportunity to celebrate and reflect on the hard work and effort that everyone involved in education has done to adapt and continue teaching in new and difficult circumstances. The theme for this year's World Teachers' Day is appropriately titled 'Teachers: Leading in crisis, reimagining the future'.

Join British Council and IATEFL on Saturday 3 October 2020 for a series of online talks, workshops and panel discussions. Each session will focus on different elements of this year's theme, including how we move forward with teaching in challenging contexts, future Englishes, teacher stories from around the world, teacher wellbeing, and discussions on how we ensure that we continue to take an inclusive approach to learning for all students. 

The 2020 World Teachers' Day web conference from British Council and IATEFL will provide you with ideas, support and a space to engage with colleagues from across the globe.
