6th International Conference on Teacher Education
July 29 – 31, 2010
SEAMEO Innotech, Commonwealth Avenue,
Quezon City, Philippines

Social class, ethnicity, indigenous origin, religion, gender, language, and other socially mediated attributes have increased the diversity in local educational agencies and schools around the world. Learners bring with their socio-economic, linguistic, cultural and regional identities, a range of knowledge, skills, and dispositions they need in their occupations, families, communities, and other civic responsibilities. To prepare students to be productive in pluralistic diverse societies, there is a need to expand ways to create new innovative knowledge and technologies. The enriching nature of diversity and transformative innovations are needed to live in a complex challenging world and to create a socially-just multicultural, global learning environment.

This conference features research and best practice papers that address the following questions:

  • How has diversity enriched our curricular offerings and instructional strategies?
  • How are teachers trained to manage diverse learners?
  • How does the concept of privilege affect the schooling of students in our present society?
  • How is equity in education guaranteed?
  • What reforms have revolutionized the way we educate students?
  • What innovations have transformed our educational landscape?

Plenary and concurrent sessions will focus on the two major conference strands:

  • Diversity in education
  • Transformative innovations


Plenary speakers include:

  • Dr. Reyes Quezada (University of San Diego)
  • Dr. Dina Ocampo (UP-Education)
  • Dr. Jose Lalas (University of Redlands)
  • Dr. Gloria Johanessen (Texas State University)
  • Dr. Richard Gordon (California State University)
  • Dr. Serena Diokno (UP-Center for Intl Studies)
