From April 13-15, 2023, the annual conference of the European Teacher Education Network (ETEN) “Teacher Education – Connecting Glocal” will take place at the Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg.

The European Teacher Education Network (ETEN) was founded in 1988 and has a status as a non-profit association under Belgian law (vzw.) since 2018. With ETEN, there is a cooperation- exchange- research- and publication platform for universities and other educational institutions with a common focus on international teacher education. Currently, ETEN has about 60 member institutions from nearly 20 European and non-European countries – including Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg since 2016.

ETEN organizes an annual conference with different thematic focuses in the field of teacher education. The aim of the 2023 conference is to explore opportunities for cooperation through international as well as local connections with partners with regard to current global challenges (e.g. pandemics, ongoing political conflicts, sustainability and digitalization) and thus to gain new theoretical and practical insights that are significant for the strategic development of the internationalization of teacher education at universities.

Registration information, conference fees and the final program will be published on the ETEN website: LINK TO ETEN WEBSITE.

The call for papers will be organized through the network’s Thematic Interest Groups (TIGs) and posted on ETEN’s website: The cfp deadline is 1 February 2023. The conference language is English.

Scientists from FAU are invited to participate, network, and present their chairs and research in poster sessions in addition to talks.
