World Teachers' Day 2020

The theme for World Teachers' Day 2020 was 'Teachers: Leading in crisis, reimagining the future'.

In 2020, we partnered again with IATEFL to provide a full day of online talks and discussion related to the UNESCO theme. Throughout the day, over 3,000 participants attended ten talks and discussion panels, each one looking at some of the key issues and challenges facing teachers and teacher educators during this extraordinary year.
