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 teachers.incide.oise@gmail.com. We thank you for your interest.
