‘Lagos teachers’ conference would address professionalism’
Discussions on recruiting, supporting and empowering teachers as well as inspiring future-oriented teaching, will take the centre stage at the third edition of the Lagos teachers’ conference.
Coordinator, Educational Aid Global Initiative (Edu-Aid), a non-governmental organisation of Covenant Christian Centre, Olufemi Orawusi, said the summit would address the challenges confronting the teaching profession in the country, particularly as it affects professional motivation, work-friendly environment and training among other incentives.
The meeting will host speakers and panelists to discuss how to build capacity and strengthen competence through exposure to relevant information, vital skills, and current teaching principles, styles and techniques.
He said experts in the field of education and teacher training will be on hand to share the best and current practices regarding mentoring, instruction and motivation of students for best possible outcomes.
The conference, with the theme, “Teaching for the future,” will serve as a platform for teachers to interact, build networks and develop relationships that would advance the profession.
He noted that massive investment in recruiting, supporting, and empowering teachers has been identified as a major key in realising sustainable development goals SDG 4 which is the new global education goal that is at the heart of the Education 2030 Agenda.
The conference is free and open to all educators and the public but registration is required and there will be an exhibition where education-related products and services will be on display.
