Teachers inCIDE SIG calling for new members!!!
Teachers inCIDE is a graduate student interest group (SIG) at OISE that focuses on inquiry related to teachers and teaching from a comparative, international and development perspective. It promotes a peer support environment for graduate students’ research journey. Through reading and discussing research articles as well as conversations with different CIDEC-affiliated professors, we aim to broaden our understandings of teachers' lives and work. If you are interested in joining the group, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We thank you for your interest.

CIDE Study Groups
We are a group of graduate students and professors from different departments at OISE who share an interest in teacher education, teacher development/learning, and comparative, international and development education. We meet twice a month at OISE. During our meetings, we share updates about our research, lives, thesis works/progress; discuss common issues of interest; exchange resources; and learn from each other. If you are interested in joining the group, please contact Yishin Khoo email@example.com or Sardar Anwaruddin firstname.lastname@example.org.
