Enhancing Competences for Modern Citizenship
Stream Leader: Dr. Shu-Nu Chang Rundgren, Professor in Education, Department of Education, Stockholm University, Sweden.
Developing competences for modern citizens has been addressed during the past decades inside and outside of Europe. The focus of the stream is to allow colleagues from all over the world to share their research on any teaching strategies (at all educational levels including pre-school to university levels, in any discipline done formally, non-formally or informally) and activities (with the public) developed in enhancing citizens’ competences. The definition of competence is following UNESCO’s definition describing that ‘Competences indicate a satisfactory state of knowledge, skills and attitudes and the ability to apply them in a variety of situations’ (UNESCO, 2012, p. 8). The competences include citizens’ key competences defined by European Commission and they are related to (1) communication competence with mother and foreign languages, (2) basic mathematical, scientific and technological competence, (3) digital competence, (4) learning to learn, (5) sense of entrepreneurship and (6) culture awareness and expression (e.g. Gordon, et al., 2009).

Collaborative Approaches to Teacher Development: Co-teaching, Coaching & Mentoring
Stream Leader:
Dr. Toni Strieker, Professor, Department of Secondary and Middle Grades Education, KSU – Kennesaw State University, USA.

For the purpose of the panel discussion, Collaborative Approaches to Teacher Development are defined as those that continuously support job-embedded professional learning that is situated and formed through cycles of goal-setting, observation, feedback and reflection with expert mentors. During the early career phase of teacher development, (i.e., pre-service education and induction) the individual assumes a problem or goal perspective to self-direct and self-regulate his or her own professional learning. The mentors employ several collaborative approaches to assist the fellow in specifying the goals, developing a plan of action, self-monitoring progress, and reflecting on practice. The immediate desired outcomes are twofold. First, we seek to enhance the teaching and learning for the preservice teacher or inductee and his or her students. Second, we provide support for the preservice teacher or inductee in becoming a self-directed, self-regulated, lifelong professional.
