Teacher Education in the COVID Moment



Education at all levels is being changed, changed utterly, by restrictions made necessary in managing the pandemic. The SCoTENS Committee used the opportunity provided by our online venue to host the Inaugural 2020 SCoTENS Webinar which allowed us to hear the ideas of a key global expert on Teaching and Teacher Education in the COVID Moment.  This was followed by engaging contributions based on research evidence and expertise from researchers from closer to home.
