Declaration of Scarborough
  • We recognize the fundamental role of teachers
    and we prioritize their professional development
    as a key factor for learning and the development
    of our societies. We therefore encourage
    countries to work together to ensure that
    mechanisms are adopted to assist developing
    countries in the training and retention of
    teachers.

    result from engagement with other teacher
    educators.

    Promising and Innovative Practices in Teacher
    Education (PIPTE) and share them at an Annual
    Knowledge Sharing Workshop
  • Conduct a Hemispheric Mapping Exercise of Teacher
    Education programs and curricula
  • Systematically organize and present them in
    publication and through the E-bulletin
  • Create online courses with the Inter-American
    Organization on Higher Education for sharing the
    experiences with a wider audience of
    practitioners and policymakers.

12
Next Steps
  • Annual Teacher Educator Research Seminar
  • One hemisphere-wide conference per year for
    sharing research findings, discussing new
    approaches and guide the development and
    direction of the network. A publication of the
    findings and recommendations would be presented
    to the CIE and Ministers of Education (and other
    education policy bodies) at their yearly
    meetings.
